No. The App should not replace your physical Road ID. The Road ID App is a valuable tool. It’s important to recognize, however, that in an accident a phone can be damaged or separated from its owner. There’s also no guarantee that a phone will be seen by First Responders or even make it to the hospital with the accident victim. Additionally, like all Apps which utilize location-based (GPS) services, the eCrumb features of the Road ID App require cellular and/or GPS technology in order to work properly. For these reasons, wearing a physical Road ID, on your person, remains critical to providing First Responders with the information they need in an emergency.
