New Orleans (WTDN) -- During a business seminar class at Loyola University in New Orleans, David Price was challenged to come up with a project that would bring about a societal change that he wanted to see. He thought back to a time when he was 16 years old and his parent had "the talk" with him when he got his driver's license. 

They explained to him how to behave and interact with a police officer if he were to ever be pulled over. At the time, he thought there had to be a better and safer way to facilitate the interactions between drivers and officers during traffic stops.

Upon recalling that conversation with his parents, the 18-year-old thought to create The Safety Pouch. The effective inventions can be clipped to the driver side window to display important documents like a license, registration and medical card to police. The goal is to limit movement and help a driver avoid reaching for anything when an officer approaches their vehicle.

The pouch comes in only one color, fluorescent orange. Price said the aim was to make it highly visible and easily recognizable.

Price's creation has quickly gained popularity after he launched pre-sales. He said he's already had more than 1,400 pre-orders for the pouch, which sells for $19.99 online.
