ROAD ID: Discount thru 12/18

10% OFF ROAD I.D.s
If you don't already have one, it's great to have!

Got an e-mail:
About a week ago, we sent you an email about our Christmas Special (10% off Road ID orders placed by 12/12/07). Well, so many of our customers asked us to give them more time to place their holiday orders. So, we decided to extend the deadline!

The good news is that you can still take advantage of the discount if you place your order by 11:00 PM (ET) on Tuesday, December 18th. Simply use the following coupon code to get your discount: PCHoliday187

ALSO, we have a whole NEW product line to show off. Now, every Road ID is available in an "INTERACTIVE" version. What's "Interactive," you ask? Well, go to the website and check it out. I think you'll be impressed!

I just got the interactive one in yellow. Now I have a black one (non-interactive) and a yellow one. The Velcro strip on the band of the black one kept attaching to my arm warmers or base layer when I'd change out of my bike clothes and I'd inevitably misplace it. I'm thinking that the bright yellow will be easier to see, plus the interactive thingy is way cool. You can put all of your emergency info in it in detail.

Gee...I wish I'd known about this. I just got one for me & my son. On chains, though. I hate velcro straps against the skin.

Mark, might I be so bold as to suggest you get two for both yourself and your son. It doesn't hurt to have and I believe as a repeat customer, they give you a slight discount. The Ineractive is superior in that you can change your info as often as you like. Two years ago my insurance policy changed and since I listed my Member # on the ID, I had to replace it. With the interactive, you can just go in and change it online. The first year is free and then it's a charge after that, but I think it's less than $10/year.

Completely worth it, IMO. I figure that if I'm ever in a catastrophic crash, the info paramedics can get immediately could absolutely save my life.

I have two. One on my person, and one that's wrapped around my bike bag in case Sacha and I get separated.

EDIT: The one on my bike has no personal information except for contact numbers.

I couldn't think of what to put on it as my son & I aren't allergic to anything (that we know of yet). As far as insurance info, I figured we'll still be treated and once family shows up, they can handle that, so I didn't htink it was necessary. The biggest thing for me was contact names/numbers. Those shouldn't change all too often, so I didn't go the interactive route. If I had a bunch of allergies, etc...I would've gotten the interactive.

Good point. I'm asthmatic and allergic to Vicadin. I'm also an organ donor, so I want this to be on my ID or easily found info. Which, by the way, guys, if you wish to donate your organs in the even of an untimely and sudden death, you need to wear something that states this as well as register with: https://www.donatelifecalifornia.org/.

I just tried their sample interactive demo (voice). That was painful. Slow instructional guidances and how are people expected to remember the emergency numbers spoken out so that they can dial it themselves? After "the voice" finished speaking the few different numbers for the 1st contact person, I'm already Zzzz'ing.

Oops, I think I sounded a little harsh. I think you should demo it first. Road ID site -> "Demo Interactive" -> "Next" -> "Next" -> "Can I HEAR a sample ERP". Then dial their number to try it out. I think I'll get the standard one.

I'm cheap. I typed my name, city, 2 contact #s, blood type, no known allergies and organ donor in a Word file, sized the font so that it's about 3"x1" and laminated it. I carry it in my jersey in a baggie with my ID.
