17 12 2017

PITTSBURGH, Pa. December 17, 2017 While safety continues to be a priority for truck manufacturers, they have not addressed the driver distraction caused by flying bugs that hit the side mirror and bounce inside the cab through an open window. Fortunately, an inventor from Suwanee, Ga., who is also a professional truck driver, conceived of an accessory that solves that problem. He developed a prototype for BUG OUT to deflect flying bugs that might otherwise hit a truck mirror while the truck is in motion.
