I have been using RoadID for a lot of years…so many I can’t even remember. I hoped it would never be needed. I never worried dreamed I would someday be hit by a car.  Seriously, I never worried about it. I can’t even say I thought about it that much. To think about it would be paralyzing. I don’t ever want to be a slave to fear so I just would not allow myself to think about it.

I do now. Well, I think about it; say a prayer; then head out for a ride. How was I supposed to know a hit-n-run driver wanted to play bumper cars with me? Only it was his passenger-side rear view mirror and I was his bumper. More accurately, my left cheek was his bumper.

That happened back in November of 2016. Lots has happened since then.

In this post I talked about meeting a camera crew from RoadID.  That meeting happened and after two fun hours it was done. The finished product is now on YouTube and you can link from it here.  I’d like to ask you to listen and comment if you care to.

    Bill, it’s so inspiring that the incidents didn’t stop you from biking, that instead you’ve become an advocate for safety even as you’ve continued to pedal onward.

    Bless you as you continue on down the road, friend.

  2. Absolutely wonderful video, Bill! And it was great to “meet” you and Jo in person. 🙂 I do hope videos like these will go viral as safety is so important on our roads, especially for bikers.
