Full Description

According to the US Department of Transportation, over 1,300 people are killed and more than 116,800 people are injured in vehicle crashes on snowy, slushy, or icy pavement annually, accounting for 24% of weather-related vehicle crashes.

On average, there are over 6,400,000 vehicle crashes each year. Twenty-four (24) percent of these crashes- approximately 1,561,000- are weather related. Weather-related crashes are defined as those crashes that occur in adverse weather (i.e., rain, sleet, snow, and/or fog) or on slick pavement (i.e., wet pavement, snowy/slushy pavement, or icy pavement). Nearly 7,400 people are killed and over 673,000 people are injured in weather-related crashes each year.

Fifteen (15) percent of weather-related crashes happen during snow or sleet. Thirteen (13) percent occur on icy pavement. Eleven (11) percent of weather related crashes take place on snowy or slushy pavement.

Each year, 75,700 people are injured, 900 people are killed in the 197,300 crashes caused annually by snow/ sleet.

In the 38,700 crashes caused annually by snow/ slushy pavement, 49,500 people are injured, and 600 people are killed.

Annually, 67,300 people are injured, 700 people are killed in the 168,400 crashes caused annually by icy pavement. [1]

Over 70% of the nation’s roads are located in snowy regions, which receive more than five inches average snowfall annually.

Nearly 70% of the U.S. population lives in these snowy regions. Snow and ice reduce pavement friction and vehicle maneuverability, causing slower speed, reduced roadway capacity, and increased crash risk. [2]

Knowing that winter driving is the leading cause of death during winter months, Dave Roseman, created a product to prevent a vehicle from skidding on roadways.

Ultimately, the main purpose of this product is to save lives.

Product Description:

The Life-Saving Car Skid Inhibitor is a revolutionary skid prevention system designed for roadway vehicles. Designed to reduce the annual number of deaths caused by winter driving, this system allows drivers to properly equip their vehicle for winter driving.

Mounted to the underbody of the vehicle, and connected to a thermal exhaust system, the Life-Saving Car Skid Inhibitor is brake activated, and effective in reducing the possibility of skidding in winter conditions.

The system creates safer driving conditions by blowing heat directly in front of the tires to allow for the tires to better grip the roadway, therefore reducing the potential for car slides. This system is designed to increase the safety of car travel in winter conditions.

The system can be retrofitted to existing vehicles or built into a vehicles new design.


Manufacturing costs have been estimated at $250-$350.

Suggested Retail Price: $1,200

 


 

 

 

Product Benefits:

  Enhances safety of vehicle travel during winter months.

  Prevents car skids, along with related personal and vehicle damage.

  Serious accidents and injuries can be avoided.

  Tire traction is increased.

  Gives a driver better peace of mind when traveling short or long distances in ominous winter weather.

 

  Fender-benders can be reduced due to increased traction and ability to stop.

  Long-term insurance costs could be reduced.

  Leads to potentially safer roadways.

  Prolongs the life of tires.

  Effects of driver panic are reduced when using The Life-Saving Car Skid Inhibitor.

 

  The Life-Saving Car Skid Inhibitor is made out of stainless steel to prevent corrosion possible through contact with water and salt.
