Road ID

If you follow my blog you know how much my workouts and walks mean to me. They keep me fit and sane. They allow me to refresh and regroup. As a single mom my plate is always full, but, I make time for my walks, even on very cold days.

While I like to walk alone, I often wonder what would happen if I get hit by a car and can’t speak? How would people know who I am or who to notify? I don’t carry anything with me on my walks and accidents do happen.

That is why I recently started wearing Road ID.

What is Road ID?

Road ID is a durable, rugged, athletic, fashionable line of identification gear. These rugged products can be worn on the wrist, on your shoe, ankle, or around the neck. They are trusted by moms and provide peace of mind. This product was designed with your safety in mind.

Road ID

Did you know that each year over 450,000 of us are taken to hospitals unconscious and without ID? Year after year, over 122,000 runners, walkers, and cyclists are hit by cars. Thousands more suffer blackouts, concussions, heart attacks, heat strokes and other serious accidents. The National Safe Kids Campaign estimates that “every day, 39,000 children are injured seriously enough to require medical attention.”

These numbers are scary – it could happen to any of us.

I also ordered a Road ID for each of my daughters. The girls are avid runners, and as a mom, I always worry about them. My oldest runs as early as 5:30 am in the big city of Chicago. Her younger sister likes to run in the morning and evening. Road ID provides them with a comfortable way to wear identification while enjoying their runs.

Road ID isn’t just for fitness enthusiasts.

My daughters also love music festivals. They’ve attended numerous, all over the country. Music festivals attract huge crowds and people get lost or pass out all the time.  No one would know who they were, or who to contact. In the past, the girls would write their contact phone numbers and names on their arms with a sharpie.  The Road ID gives them and me the peace of mind of knowing no matter what happens, they will be spoken for in an emergency.

All IDs come with a stainless steel plate that is etched with your personal information, which you design yourself. This took less than five minutes to fill out my information: name, birth year, emergency contacts.

Road ID gear is not just for runners or cyclists. It’s also great for kids in case they get lost. I’m happy with the quality of these wrist bands. They are made with a high quality silicone that appears to be tough enough to withstand many miles of running, hiking,  cycling, and any other outdoor adventure.

Stay safe and wear identification!

How many of you carry your driver’s licenses on your run or walk? Probably not many. I would strongly encourage everyone to get a Road ID.
