Multiple industries are continuously suffering because of the pandemic. And as the number of infected cases and fatalities keep rising, it might be long before businesses reopen, and the economy goes back to normal.
Life has been more challenging for Timothy Lawson, who works as a policeman and a part-time Uber and Lyft driver. Driving has been a source of supplemental income, and he had to stop temporarily for his safety and the safety of his family. The fact that he could not gain more for his family and provide service to the customers through ride-sharing, disappointed him.
Things changed when his daughter, Brooklynn, raised a question he has not thought about before, “Why can’t you just place a separator in your car like the one in your police car?” This query is what inspired Timothy to start thinking about making a brand and developing his car divider product.
He wanted a product that would not have to be a permanent part of the car so as not to mar or alter the vehicle in any way. This product would be the most beneficial for the Uber and Lyft drivers who do not own the car they’re driving, thus eliminating the concern of having to return a damaged car.
Share Shield was later on crafted as a removable car divider screen, providing the ease of access where users can quickly and safely assemble, take apart, and move from one vehicle to another. Share Shield does not require any tools for removing and installing, and one person can effortlessly handle it.
An essential function of Share Shield is that it separates the driver from the passenger completely, and acts as a barrier to reduce the spread of bacteria brought by cold, cough, and sneezes. This clear product still allows for safe communication and visual transparency for the rider and driver. Still, the product remains breathable and non-restrictive and looks pleasing. Moreover, Safe Shield is 100% made from recyclable materials and PET, which makes it flexible, durable, and light.
Share Shield is a one-size-fits-most product, which is incredibly lightweight and lays flat on any surface. What makes Share Shield an efficient product is that it does not require any drilling or sticking of materials into the car. The product is also tested and proven to remain in place for the whole duration of the ride.
More of the products are in the works. But due to the rising cost of materials during the pandemic, Timothy has decided to open up a Kick Starter to launch Share Shield. It is a platform where people can provide necessary financial assistance to show support for the idea and the development of the product.
Seeing how it is a product that can continuously protect drivers and riders, Share Shield could be an absolute necessity not only during these times of pandemic but also in the future.
