In 2004 I crashed my bike when I slipped on wet leaves after dark. The helmet was trashed and my left clavicle broken.
I was conscious but incoherent because of the smack of my helmet to the pavement. The EMTs who responded used the information to treat me quickly and appropriately. I am allergic to opiates.
I added the phrase “Please transport bicycle” on the carrier and when I woke up in the hospital after surgery, my first question was, “where’s my bike?” The answer? They brought it along with me in the ambulance to the hospital and there is was along the wall right in my room!
The Medical Information Carrier System helped me get the proper treatment and saved my bike!

“I work for a nonprofit that serves people with brain injuries. Part of our program is to prevent brain injuries whenever possible through education about safety and wearing properly fitted helmets. Every year we host a Safety Fair during which our staff fits and supplies helmets to local youth. For the past few years we have been very enthusiastic about including a MEDS bicycle helmet sticker system with each helmet. It is a great idea in an extremely clever design, and we thank you for helping us keep children safe.”
