“I am a CDL driver and have been a taxi cab owner and operator for over 25 years,” said an inventor, from Detroit, Mich. “I have known drivers who have passed away due to 16-18 hours of sitting and developing swollen feet. I wanted to invent a system to help solve this problem for drivers.”

He invented the COMMERCIAL PORTABLE ASSIST FOR DRIVERS, a system that allows taxicab drivers to temporarily leave their vehicle without fear of missing a fare assignment. This enables the driver to take a walk, use the restroom, or eat a meal inside a restaurant without missing a fare assignment signaled in from dispatch. This helps to save time and avoids discomfort for the driver. Also, it could help to improve driver health. The convenient and user-friendly device is portable and it is producible in design variations. Additionally, it could also be used for limousines, shuttles and buses.

The inventor described the benefits of the invention. “My design improves efficiency and productivity while increasing a driver’s freedom.”

The original design was submitted to the Bingham Farms office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
