Share Article

Based in Pittsburgh, Pa., InventHelp is working to submit the L.O.S. to appropriate companies for their consideration.

Even the slightest miscalculation on a truck driver's part can cause extensive damage. If a truck collides with a bridge or an overpass, the structure can become damaged beyond repair, the truck would need extensive repair, it would result in the dispatch of police, cause a massive traffic jam and could even result in injury or death.

An inventor from Fort Worth, Texas, has invented L.O.S., a device that automatically alerts a driver if the rig or cargo is too tall to fit under an overpass. "I was inspired to invent this device because of the frequent news stories involving trucks that hit overpasses and cause serious damage," said the inventor. L.O.S. prevents serious damage to expensive commercial equipment and highway overpasses and ensures that important freight is delivered in a timely manner and without damage.

This invention could help keep insurance rates down, which would appeal to trucking companies. With this device, truckers have peace of mind that their route is clear of obstruction.

The original design was submitted to the Dallas office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 15-DLL-3173, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at -
