The bus driver protection shield that I have invented came about after the 9-11 events in which the airlines and other mass transit systems implemented protection of its passangers, but the bus industry did nothing. My dad who owned a bus company all my life told me many stories about the threats he and his drivers had to deal with. While making my proto types my dad would say for me to put anything on my buses it has to be stylish and remenber it will only be a deterent to give the driver time to slow down and pull over to the side of the road protecting all aboard. The only one hundred percent driver protection would be to build a floor to roof box and that would not be practial or passanger friendly. What I have developed is to keep threats at arms length, passanger friendly and practial cost wise. I will be working next to make this an industry standard.
