    Diabetes.

    I am an insulin dependent diabetic, and it's nice to have a service like RoadID available for emergencies. I agree with your point that MOST people don't need the kind of medical visibility that I do... but for me the wrong injection at an inopportune time can mean big trouble or death.

    Also remember that EMT's aren't the only first responders. Example: My brother-in-law is also diabetic. He was driving to a friend's house very early one morning to go hunting... and on the way there he had a low blood glucose episode. A low blood glucose can look like drunkenness to the untrained eye... and when the police found him beside the road in his truck, they thought that he was just a guy who had stayed out all night drinking. They took him to the station and locked him up in the drunk tank... he would have died there had his friend not seen his abandoned truck and called the police.

    Some sort of medical ID probably would have helped.

    Just wanted to chime in and shill for boomerang tags.

    I got my tag in the mail last week and the quality is fantastic imo. Anyone that was on the edge about ordering one definitely should. Thanks everyone for information!

    Road tag

    I thought about the Road ID, but decided for a lower cost alternative. A friend at work made some tags for me (4 total) out of bright yellow gravo-ply. It's a two layer plastic that, when engraved, shows black letters. ICE is engraved across one end with my other info (like the RoadID) is engraved on the main part of the tag. I always have at least one clipped on my body or bike.

    Commuting I always have my identification in my wallet. But when it comes to road bike riding, I use a folded photo-copy of my drivers license, insurance information, primary doctor business card.... the stuff that might help in the even of an accident.

    Hi guys,

    I am looking for a new ID bracelet for my 2 months bike trip across western Europe. Anyone ever heard of these: ICESTRIPE. I wasn't happy about Road ID customer service so I am looking for some other alternatives. Never heard of icestripe before, but they seem to have good quality and better prices than roadid. The also sponsor some Tinkoff Saxo rider. Anyone tried any of their products?

    Especially as the poster appears to have registered just to post this "question" - post count "1".

    Anyway, I got a metal tag made by a dog collar tag company. It is rectangular, stainless steel, about 1.5" x 2.5", with slots on either end, my watchband slides through those slots, the tag rides right on my left wrist where you'd check pulse, and it holds five lines of text and was cheap. I've worn it for over a year now, and interestingly, no-one has ever commented on it, so if it looks stupid, people are too polite to say so.

    Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 2 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be
