From the Road ID website: ID should be as common and important as putting on a seat belt when getting into a car, or strapping on a bike helmet to go for a ride. Identification is important for people of all ages. If you are a runner, cyclist, jogger, walker, hiker, climber, skater, skier, boarder, or someone who doesn't spend all of their time on the couch, then we encourage you to wear ID. Kids need ID too as they rarely have ID when they go out for a bike ride or walk to school.
Here are some stats for you: 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."
I wear my Road ID everytime I go out without my purse: while running, hiking, swimming, etc. It provides peace of mind that in case something happens to me, police will know who I am and who to call.
Road ID is also great while traveling! I have seen families at Disney World all wearing bracelets, listing their names and contact phone numbers, just in case the child became separated from the parents. I thought this was such a great idea!
Road IDs are very inexpensive for comfort they provide. And they are stylish, too! The bracelet styles come in different widths and colors, and you can even add a badge to decorate it. I have two different color bands that I switch out to match my outfit: Orange and Red. You can get a Road ID as a bracelet, shoe ID, ankle ID, dogtag, or as a Dog Tag (don't want to leave out our furry friends from being protected!).
