Simple solution is available for safety on the road | Letter to the Editor

After reading the article about Marcella, “Woman’s bike accident underscores need for ID” (Aug. 24), I wanted to share information about RoadID (www.roadid.com).  

Several years ago while training for a half marathon and running along the main highway, I worried about not having ID on me if struck by one of the cars whizzing by. I found RoadID and purchased an ID that attached to the laces of my running shoes. 

It gave me peace of mind to know that if I were injured, my wife would be contacted. This past year when I switched to Vibram running shoes, I switched to a wrist ID that is similar to the yellow Lance Armstrong bracelets. You have the option of having your information on the ID or an 800 number that first responders can call to get all of your information. It’s a pretty cheap way to carry your ID and get peace of mind.
