Luckily, I was wearing my Road ID!

by ROAD iD Staff May 18, 2021

About a month after I received my Road ID my husband and I (both Triathletes) were on a long training ride in preparation for an upcoming half ironman. During the ride, an SUV pulled toward the curb and struck me. I was shocked - I never thought anything like this would ever happen to me.
>When the paramedics and the police arrived, my husband was trying to remain calm. In his panicked state, however, he wasn't remembering some of my vital information. Luckily, I was wearing my Road ID. The officer took the information he needed from the Road ID and then gave it to the next person for their use. This helped immensely because my husband had forgotten that I have asthma and that I am allergic to Vicodin - a pain killer they could have easily given me.

I was lucky the injuries I sustained were not life threatening. I am healed now and am back to training. I never go out without my Road ID. It really helped a lot when I needed it.
