Another Helmet/ID Testament from Curt Slater
I was out on an easy ride on Monday, 4/16, after work and was involved in a bike accident myself. I don't remember anything about the accident, but I ended up in a ditch with a concussion. Fortunately, I was wearing my helmet and my RoadID. When a lady found me in the ditch, she was able to use the information from my RoadID to contact my wife who then met us at the Hockessin Medical Aid Unit. I was later taken to Christiana Hospital for follow-up care. I did not lose consciousness, but the concussion effects linger and I'm told that they'll be with me for quite a while. I'm not trying to scare anyone into not riding, but along with you, I can't stress enough the importance of wearing a helmet and a RoadID. I've been told by my doctors and others that wearing a helmet probably saved my life or, at the very least, prevented much more serious injuries.
