As most cyclist already know, it’s getting a lot more dangerous on the roads for us. According to the latest National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics for 2015, there has been a 6 percent increase in bicyclist fatalities since 2006 and a 12.2 percent increase from the previous year (2014).
While the makers of ROAD iD can’t help you avoid a collision, they do offer a free real-time tracking App. It shows an eCrumb trail of your location and provides a Stationary Alert if you are inactive for a set amount of time so your loved ones can monitor your status while you’re out on your bicycle.
I use this app when I am cycling, walking my dogs, hiking or any time I want someone to know my location. It has worked faultlessly for me.
