Heads Up! Safety, Inc., of Farmingdale, New Jersey, is accepting pre-orders for their flagship product, “The Guardian,” a portable device that addresses the safety of motorists who have to pull their cars over to the side of the road, especially at night or in bad weather conditions. The kit consists of a brightly colored orange hazard flag that is attached to a telescoping pole which has a mounting bracket with suction cups so it is simple to stick onto the window of your vehicle. There is also an advanced version being developed which will include a strobe light and a GPS distress beacon as well as a bigger model called “The Sentinel ” which will be specifically applicable for large fleet vehicles. This award-winning product guarantees visibility better than any other automotive roadside safety product available. “We are dedicated to saving lives with products that make safety, business, and consumer sense,” commented Shayle Durkin, the CEO and founder of Heads Up! Safety, Inc, at the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA).

Mr. Durkin, who is a father of six, describes how he came up with the idea for The Guardian .“An SUV pulled out from in front of me in the far right hand lane. Suddenly a woman who had broken down in the same lane that I was in was standing right in front of me! As I screeched almost sideways to avoid hitting her, I literally said, ‘God there has to be a better way for people to protect themselves in these situations.’” Within the short time it took him to avoid the potential accident and get safely over the bridge, he had the idea for a product that would be easy to use and affordable to help prevent such dangerous conditions for motorist, both on the roadway and off.

At the product premier held by the Invention and New Product Exposition (INPEX) in Pittsburg, Heads Up! Safety, Inc., won five awards from the international panel of judges — the Award for Excellence in Commercialization, a Gold medal in the Safety and Security Industrial category, a Silver medal in the Personal category for Safety and Security, and another Silver medal in the Novelty and Specialty Gifts category. INPEX is considered one of the largest annual showcases for new invention in the U.S.

Heads Up! Safety, Inc. works with official sources in the transportation safety industry to assure that their products meet all the standard OSHA safety requirements so their customers can be assured they are purchasing a top quality innovative vehicle safety product.
