    RoadID..

    Not a shill, my wife decided to buy me one after my last encounter with the asphalt. Nice idea, and really great quality. She bought the ankle version, which also doubles as a reflective band.

    The only thing I can't figure is why she had her cell # put on it as an ICE contact, when she never answers the damn thing

    I've got the FIXX ID. It is great quality. And for $20 it's cheap insurance.

    Could be worse. I have an ICE who only turns their cell phone on when they have an emergency. Of course, that is why that person is number 3 on the list. They will never get contacted because number 2 is a realtor.

    My fiancee is on my RoadID for emergency contact. I figure they'll leave her a message and she'll eventually find out where they took me.

    My cheap dog tag on a neck chain has name, address, phone and ICE phone. Perfectly fine for those of us without medical complications.

    I had dog tags made up at the nearby military surplus store. The tags have my emergency info on them.

    A jogger in DC was hit by a bus a couple of days ago:

    They spent most of the day trying to figure out who she was because she wasn't carrying ID.

    I knew a lady who was a Jane Doe for nearly an hour. Her pockets werre stripped bare by the locals before EMS arrived, and it took a while for her cognition to return to the point where she was specific and believable. Just thought I would throw that out there, a reminder that your wallet may not be adequate ID, depending on where you cycle.

    Are we married to the same woman???

    I use a dog tag I had made at a local army navy store, then I bought a collar for a small dog to attach it to my wrist. I need a new/better one, out of date info. I was contemplating writing the info on paper and pinning it to my shirt, maybe not a very good idea.

    I got the Boomerang tag, and have 3 ICE numbers on there on the back. The GF always has her cell phone on, but wasn't real thrilled when I put her number on the tag. She was the one the cops contacted first after her exhusband died after being hit by a car while bicycling, and we're both hoping that doesn't happen to me.

    I get mine from:
    http://www.loveyourpets.com/

    $3.95. At that price I got enough to put them in the laces of all my shoes, on the zipper of my jacket, and one around my neck. And got some for my pets collars too as long as I was paying shipping.

    I agree that it's a great idea, but there's nothing magical about RoadID. I bought one once but it's just a damn tag, there's no reason to pay $20+ for a tag with some stuff etched into it. Of course, if you have medical issues that are relevant in emergencies and can't be adequately expressed on a MedicAlert tag, you might want to go for their extra services, but for most people a literal dog tag is fine.

    +1 Although I replaced my chain with a cloth lanyard for comfort.

    She's your wife. You just wrote down the reason for that.

    I typed my ICE on notepad, printed it, cut it to fit the keychain sized "loyalty" cards from grocery stores and pharmacies. I taped my ICE on both sides of the loyalty card and then laminated it with clear packing tape. I carry it on my keyring.

    Cheap and easily updated.

    Yep, it bugs me. There's 4000 terms etc around this board that I don't have a clue about and I don't ask because of subtly rude comments like yours.

    Wow, what bee got in my bonnet today?
