As a result of a several police shootings and people getting pulled over, two Virginia parents came up with an invention which they hope will help to protect drivers during traffic stops.

This couple created a clear pouch called the “Not Reaching” pouch, and it can hold a driver’s license, insurance card and a car’s registration. It also has a magnet that holds the documents in place near the driver’s side of the car. This product has been designed so that the driver doesn’t have to reach to the glove compartment passenger side of the car for their personal information during a traffic stop.

Jackie Carter said “When an officer approaches your vehicle during a traffic stop you no longer have to reach. The reaching and the sudden movement is what most officers that we interviewed said that makes them nervous during traffic stops,”

These parents obtain input from law enforcement while developing to contribute their ideas for the concept of the product. They also got the support of Philando Castile’s mother. The incident Castile was involved in became national news as his fiancée posted the video of him being shot during a traffic stop in Minnesota in 2016 on Facebook.

They aren’t saying that this is the total solution to the problem, but it’s a start.

These pouches are being sold for about $10.00 and they have sold about 2000 of them across the country so far.
