I don't know if anyone has heard of these, my husband saw them and told me about them.

I think they'd be more use to cyclists than runners due it possibly being a little more likely of being involved in an accident (due to being on the road instead of the pavement). Correct me if I am wrong.

I think they are a good idea, if you have a 'funny turn' when you are out at least someone can be contacted.

What do you think?

Hi Minxie.
This isn't a new idea. A few years ago the brother of Steve Cram collapsed (and died, I think) whilst out running and it was quite a while before he could be identified, leading to a delay in family being informed. As a result of this, Steve introduced "Cram Tags" for runners. I think that these were fastened to running shoes and contained the type of information that the Road ID thingies have.
Before that, in the 80's, there were "SOS" pendants. These were either gold or silver locket- type pendants which contained all relevant personal info on a fold-out piece of paper.
... Basically all good ideas, I think

I've heard of them before too but I think they are a great idea... not only for if you have a 'funny turn' but also if you get hit by a car. I think I may add it to my 'Birthday wish list' :rolleyes:

Good idea!

I could strap it to the cod piece on my new spandex "horn of plenty" running shorts I got off eBay.

Richard, don't you think that anyone wearing the aforementioned garment would be MORE likely to be involved in a collision with traffic anyway? View attachment 217
I agree Mr p

I wonder if the company have done a risk assessment on those shorts .

You could have someones eye out in more ways than one!!!:eek:

Teeheee....

I think they're a good idea... I got lost once in the abyss that is Deeside in Scotland once... I had my mobile with me but had to run a a bit before I could get any signal... ANYWAY... had I not been found by my parents, it mightn't of been that bad because I coulda probably walked back to Aberdeen, it was only 15 miles or so... ANYWAY, had something bad happened, that woulda been really helpful to the authorities involved.

I have my parents house number written on the inside of my watch just in case anyway.

Nup... although my parents nicely took me a handful of almonds for when they eventually found me. Anyway... I'd prefer nutella sandwhiches. :p

That's only what I look like when I'm in the lab - whenever I come into contact with whatever it is I've spilled on my lab coat I turn into a fluffy, adorable teddy bear. My peers know me as either "nasty bear" or "nice bear".

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You bears are all the same. Especially the quiet student ones. Going round being all rudey with your octopus, making out butter wouldn't melt and all that. We know the truth ;)

Sorry.

Not only have I taken this completely off topic, I've now gone off on a tangent of the off topic.

Back to road ID bands. Top idea.
