While safety continues to be a priority for truck manufacturers, they have not addressed the driver distraction caused by flying bugs that hit the side mirror and bounce inside the cab through an open window. Fortunately, an inventor from Suwanee, Ga., who is also a professional truck driver, conceived of an accessory that solves that problem.

He developed a prototype for BUG OUT to deflect flying bugs that might otherwise hit a truck mirror while the truck is in motion. As such, it keeps bugs out of the vehicle and protects truck drivers against bee stings and bug bites while driving. Thus, it improves highway safety by reducing driver distraction. At the same time, it does not restrict use of the mirror. This novel safety feature is also sturdy and versatile to fit all types of truck mirrors. In addition, it is convenient, effective, affordably priced and easy to install and use.

The inventor’s professional experience inspired the idea. “While driving my truck, I was startled by suddenly feeling something crawling on the back of my neck,” he said. “After discovering, it was a bee, I decided to find some way to prevent this dangerous situation for the safety of all professional truck drivers.”

The original design was submitted to the Atlanta office of InventHelp. It is currently patent pending and available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
