P.E.A.S ~ Portable Emergency Alert System
I had a motorcycle wreck early in the morning as I was on my way to work. I went off the road as a result of the oncoming car failing to "DIM THEIR LIGHTS!" The morning was dark, cold and wet due to an earlier rain shower. I went off the road and over an embankment, I took out a speed limit sign and was thrown 16 ft. into a small stream. My bike was totaled,it was pitch black and I survived. The problem was, that oncoming cars that came by me "never saw me!" I sat in the dark and called my brother and upon arrival to the site, he could not find me either. I was in a field off the road injured.
