Ok this is a new one on me
i thought it was some sort of bragging game
**You mean like **
Top Trumps? so many marks for being on a big sports bike compared to a little scoot, so many for the smidsy being a Bentley rather than a Fiat? and so on..........
seriously, anything that can save vital seconds and minutes has to be a good idea doesn't it? and prevent aggravation of pre-existing complaints
Excellent idea. Think I'll get one (and hope it don't have to put it to use)
Excellent idea. When dealing with any casualty one of the most important contributing factors to any initial treatment is obtaining "history" and before you all start i dont mean details of castles and places of antiquity.
Smoto5.....That sounds like a winner CRASH CARD TRUMPS
If they see the green dot on your lid... and you've got a major neck injury (likely) what if they bust your neck and kill/paralyse ya just trying to find out your name??? " />
I'd rather stay anonymous and continue my head-banging career ta..!! " />
Marcus!!! You're back!! Good stuff!
As Flyer says,and I might be being a little cynical here but is inside the helmet the best place to put it? The one thing you're not supposed to remove unless you've stopped breathing. Not so much worried about a paramedic etc, more a "helpful" member of the public. Might dog tags or a bracelet be an alternative? Mind you, do think this is already in circulation aka SOS Bracelet/pendant. Good idea though,
If History has taught us One thing....
It's We've learnt None of Histories Lessons!
I agree inside the helmet has got to be the worse idea ever, when some eager first aider decides you havent got a neck injury, I thought the idea was the helmet is only removed immeadiatly if there is an airway problem, this is going to encourage removal, to phone a friend
I favour this idea
a friend used to have one, this recently in the news convienced me to get one!
Picked my card up at bsb last year, been in my lid ever since
I think the "not removing helmet" is aimed at first aiders and not paramedics, I guess paramedics will know if it's safe to remove it or not.
You can pick them up at on Bikesafe course apparently it was an idea of a motorcyclist paramedic. My kids filled out mine and put in the lid just shows even kids have twigged its a good idea.
'WHO CARES WE NEVER WIN...........'
My 2007 Schuberth C2
has one built into the outside of the helmet shell. Fill in the card and replace in the helmet pocket.
members of the public
members of the public won't be looking for the card as they wont know what the green dots mean, these cards are for medics, the police and fire.
you can stay anonymous if you like and not let medics know about any preexsisting medical problems thats your choice.
you can also sit in a hospital bed with memory loss unable to tell anyone who you are or where you live whilst your family sits at home wondering where you are and fearing the worse.
Arryace has a point
It has happened to me (sort of). Gone out for a swift one (pint not pull) and suffered short term memory loss. Not known who I am , where I live, what did I come in here for etc.
However, doesn't seem the family have ever been that worried
The voices in my head may not be real
But they do have some good ideas
I have to say i do think that they are a good idea, i remember seeing some other kind of id cards in bike shops but these cost nearly £30 which i think is a lot of money although some will say its not alot of money to save your life which i can also understand. dose anyone know how much theses crash cards cost?
cheers all and ride safe
