ID bracelet is an asset for athletes | Letter to the Editor

Reading the story about the woman injured in a bike accident, I was doubly glad to have bought a RoadID bracelet a few years ago.

As a runner and cyclist, I don’t like to carry a bulky wallet or loose ID card, and I know they could get dropped or lost if I fall or get hit.

RoadID makes a product for wrist, ankle or shoe pouch with room for several lines of information that is not likely to get separated from you in an accident. Mine has my name, age, home town, drug allergies and three phone numbers for my wife.

The company even makes an interactive model where your information can be accessed online. Information about the products and ordering is at www.RoadID.com or 1-800-345-6336.

I want to emphasize that I have no financial interest in this product or company. In fact, I think even any referral discount expired some time ago. I am just an active runner and cyclist, former first aider and coach and volunteer at local events. I have seen some participants at recent HOTS Triathlons with a RoadID and would like to see everyone wear, not carry, easily accessible and obvious ID.
