I wear my Road ID at all times

by ROAD iD Staff May 18, 2021

There is a reason I wear my Road ID at all times: I unfortunately put it to the test on my motorcycle earlier this year.  I was on my way home from a motorcycle safety and awareness meeting when a car ran a red light and we collided. The medics used my Road ID to get my information while riding in the ambulance. With 13 broken bones and a collapsed lung, you can imagine I wasn't able to communicate very well.  They continued to use my ID, asking me questions about myself just to keep me talking.  My Road ID wrist band was then passed along to the trauma hospital, making it easy for me to get checked in, even though I'd never been there before as a patient.

I was in the trauma center for a week, and in a rehab hospital for another two.  I'm happy to report that after months in a wheel chair, and a lot of physical therapy, I'm recovering well.  I now recommend Road ID to everyone I know that rides.  It is such a simple thing, but it can be a lifesaver.
