|This was in the morning paper:
Apparently, the rider didn't have any lights (and it's dark around here at 6:00). I still don't know who the rider was...

|Is it normal for people not to carry some sort of identification? Obviously, I hope it is never required, but it is important. I carry a little plastic case which I put some idea in, along with 20 bucks just in case I need something. I also carry a cell phone, in the case of an emergency as well.
Just curious ...

|I'm diabetic, so I always wear an ID necklace, but I think that I would wear one in any case. In this particular instance it must have been a horrible way for the people at Smith's (which is a pretty good LBS) to start their day, and who knows how the victim's relatives felt while they waited for him, and the police couldn't do an ID?
Still--I can't believe that he was out without a light on that stretch of road at that time of the morning...

|It is is stated in an the article:
b "The man, whose name was not released pending notification of relatives".
So it is not a case of "not carrying a indetification".

|Sorry for my previous post - I have re-read article more closely and have realised that police identify victim not from ID but in indirect way - using the sticker from bycicle and LBS help.|

|Until recently, I never rode with ID. I just never gave it much thought. Now, I have a dog tag that I wear around my neck.|

|I used to not carry ID either. Now that I'm a dad I tend to think more responsibly. So, I carry my spare tube in a ziplock baggie that also contains a slip of paper that has my name, address, phone number, names & phone numbers of emergency contacts, plus my insurance ID number.
Hopefully, it'll never be needed....
