RoadID – Emergency ID

Being active is an important part of getting and being healthy. One of my favorite ways to be active is riding my bike, but I also go for walks and even do a bit of running. Carrying an ID when doing these things can be a bit of a hassle… but if you have have a Road ID, it doesn’t have to be.

They make a variety of products geared towards having a way to carry your “ID” in situations where you don’t typically carry your ID. I use the the Wrist ID Slim – it’s a laser engraved, stainless-steel ID tag that comes on a silicone band, the same size as the various bands you see people sorting for various causes or just for fun, and in my case I use it to convey medical alert information.

Road ID

I just recently had to order a replacement after wearing mine 24/7 for just over two years. The silicone band was starting to break and the ID tag was wearing to the point of getting hard to read. I kept up with the black band, even though they offer a bunch of different colors. I may order another band in a different color, but for now I just want it to “be there”, not really jump out at anyone.

Also, this time around I added what they call badges. They are used to customize your RoadID with things that interest you, sort of like charms on a bracelet. I added one with the standard Medical Alert symbol. One thing I should note, had it been a simple matter of my ID wearing out, they would have replaced it for free, but I also needed to update my info… so instead of doing that and just buying a new band, I bought the whole thing.

This is one of those things that you hope you never need to have, but at such reasonable costs – there’s no reason not to have it.
