    Emergency ID

    Here's a roadID.com coupon for $1 off for the next 19 people using it by 6/19. Coupon Number: ThanksBarb5707785

    OK, it's only a dollar off, but I figured it's a good reminder to always have some ID on you, I used to carry an old license in my seatbag, and I do have ICE (in case of emergency) numbers listed in my phone (also usually in seatbag or pack), but I have my doubts if they would be found in an emergency.

    I got one for my niece who runs & has diabetes, and one for me. We'll see how I like looking down at "organ donor" on my wrist all the time, but of course what you put on there is up to you,

    The basic one came to $21.50 with shipping and the coupon.

    This thread reminds me that my roadID is AWOL. It's supposed to be clipped to my commuting pack, another thing I gotta find this weekend.

    I ordered one with the coupon code. Thanks.

    I didn't go with a witty comment though, I put my health insurance # in that space.

    I have a cheap medic alert SS bracelet with plastic wrapped info. I think roadID has a digital model you can download your medical info onto for fast emergency personel access.

    Been having health difficulties preventing much riding of late. Looks like heavy metal toxicity. My teeth (fillings = Mercury) appear to be kiling me along with Lead, Copper, and Bismuth. Explains the bike safety paranoia and the instant anger.

    So mine might be "Beware, Toxic. Not for consumption."
    Or "Toxic waste. Handle with extreme care."
    "I was trying to get the Lead out..."
    "I'm beginning to feel like Raspiutin. No swimming!"

    Some other retorts:
    "Heaven can wait."
    "We have to stop meeting like this!"!"
    "Should have taken the bus."
    "Not dead yet, I hope."
    "What? No airbag?"
    "No donation without life cessation!"
    "You ought to see the other guy."
    "What the BLEEP! happened?"
    "I KNEW this was a bad day to ride."
    "Wrong turn in Albequerque!"
    "This side up."
    "Wow! Two vehicles CAN'T occupy the same space and time!"
    "Gravity works!"
    "Did someone get the plate?"
    "I was wrong. I do feel worse."
    "My wife is gonna KILL me!"
    "Did I scratch the bike?"

    Enjoy.

    Sorry to hear about the health issues, Brian. I see your sense of humour is unaffected, though. Hope you feel better soon.

    I like this tag, it's kind of funny though and can I add "please"?

    Dead Cyclist Mystery Solved

    Wednesday 28 September 2011

    Dead cyclist mystery solved
    Published on Wednesday 28 September 2011 05:11

    A CYCLIST killed in a head-on smash with a motorbike was identified only after a colleague raised the alarm to say he had not turned up for work.

    The cyclist and motorbiker Kim Broomhead were killed in a crash on the A621 near Owler Bar roundabout on Sunday.

    The cyclist had no form of identification and officers were unable to establish who he was.

    But when a colleague rang his family after he did not arrive for work on Monday, relatives contacted police, who today named him as Matthew Hook, aged 28, from Sheffield city centre.

    He died at the scene, as did the motorcyclist, Mr Broomhead, aged 51, from Norton, Sheffield.

    An inquest into both deaths was adjourned at Chesterfield Coroner’s Court. PC Darren Parkin said: “The cyclist was carrying no identification such as a wallet or a telephone. There were no reports filed of missing people that day. We made inquiries about the bicycle he was riding because it was quite specialist, but that proved fruitless. We fingerprinted him but as he was not known to the police that didn’t help.

    “Because he lived alone there was nobody there to realise he was missing and raise the alarm. But a colleague rang his family when he didn’t turn up for work the following day and they called police.”

    I am a firm believer in RoadID. I have worn one since 2009. As an EMT out there working events, I can tell you that my staff and I look for them on patients. And they have come in handy a few times!

    Best tagline I've seen on one so far: "Is my bike OK?"

    I know the thread is a bit old but, I make my own. I use old student IDs or District IDs ( get a new one every year) all i do is put basic medical information on it and my drivers license number. I ususally use a name tag and run it through the printer and put it on the backside of the ID. This way they have a somewhat recent photo and basic information to get them going in the right direction in case of an emergency. Plus its a card, fits flat in the shirt pouch or pocked, dont even notice it. Downside is that if you accidently run through the wash or get it really wet you would have to print a new tag but for 20 dollars you have years worth of those and can update them for cheap.

    Good topic. I always have at least my DL and med insurance card stuck in a pocket. I've thought about carrying something additional to indicate my blood type but a recent parallel convo with my family DR gave me the impression ERs always blood type as a matter of course. Only other thing I can think of is to add a contact emer #.

    This just makes me sick!

    MADE YOU LOOK!
