“When I first got my driver's license, my parents sat me down at the table to have the talk with me...explained to always keep my hands in sight when dealing with an officer, and if I do need to reach for my information, I always make sure to announce it to them,” said David Price, founder of The Safety Pouch.
It’s the talk that many parents of color have to give their teenagers when they get their driver’s license.
But for 18-year-old Loyola University student David Price, this conversation inspired him to invent something that could keep drivers safe.
"Our project for our midterm was to create an idea that would bring a societal change that we would like to see," said Price.
He calls it "The Safety Pouch."
Drivers can place their license, registration and important documents inside The Safety Pouch.
If pulled over, drivers can hang the pouch from their window to keep their hands visible at all times.
The Safety Pouch has received praise from celebrities online, like Tina Lawson and Holly Robinson Peete.
But ultimately, David hopes his invention will make driving safer and put parents at ease.
