InventHelp is working to submit the HEADS-UP SAFETY CONE to companies in the hopes of their good faith review.

All too often, inattentive drivers kill or injure roadway and other construction workers. Because of this workplace danger, an inventor from Wagoner, Okla., decided to help keep workers safe in this environment. States can double the fines or place state troopers or other law enforcement personnel and their cars in these work zones, but it does not deter or slow drivers down. People continue to text, talk on their phones, mess with their kids and other actions that take their eyes and attention off the roadways!

He developed a prototype for HEADS-UP SAFETY CONE to help create a safer workplace for construction workers on roadways and other sites where motor vehicles travel. As such, it detects when a motor vehicle is about to strike it and alerts workers of the impending danger. Thus, it has the potential to save lives and prevent injuries. As a result, it affords peace of mind for workers in high traffic areas. It also reduces the number of automobile accident claims filed. In addition, it is convenient, effective, easy to use and affordably priced. Also, it lowers companies' insurance on individual workers that they might have to pay!

The inventor’s personal observation inspired the idea. “Concerned about the safety of those who work on highway and other construction projects, I wanted to find a way to reduce the number of these workers killed by inattentive drivers,” he said. "Way too many of these workers are killed and injured each year! My invention alerts workers when any motor vehicle has veered into their work zone and out of marked travel lanes!"

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