ROAD iD Should be Mandatory

Last Monday, I was on mile 18 of a 21 mile ride.  With the green light and in my aero bars at 22 mph a car turned directly into me.  I had no time to react.  I flew over the hood of the car.  The EMT’s and police were there in less than a minute and I was checked out.  My Ankle ID provided the officer all the information he needed!  I never run or ride without it.  Road ID should be a mandatory piece of equipment for all athletes.

Update: The driver had insurance; my bike shop did a phenomenal job repairing my bike.  I completed the race 5 days later – not as fast as I wanted, but all in one piece.
