  • In the U.S. over 10% of fatal crashes involve distracted driving and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration calls distracted driving a "deadly epidemic."
  • Of the 1,469 fatal crashes in the UK in 2015 over one third were due to distractions

We recommend that all forms of distractions are eliminated while driving and that you keep your eyes on the road. A member of our family and a close friend have both recently been involved in accidents due to distracted driving when someone was drinking coffee in the car. One reason is that with traditional travel coffee cups you need to tilt your head back as you drink your coffee. The more you drink the further back your head needs to go to finish your drink and the less you can see.

When you are over 50% done with your drink your vision is totally blocked. If you are traveling at 60 MPH then you will travel half the length of a football field in the 2 seconds you are taking your eyes off of the road to take your sip. People will continue to drink coffee in the car. We developed Sidesip so that people could drink with the same drinking motion but with almost complete forward visibility.  

   

 

 

There are three products offered as rewards.  These include:

Sidesip Cups in three colors (Titanium Blue, Powder White, and Leather Black), T-Shirts (S-M-L-XL) and Sidesip 4" X 6" Stickers.

Once the project goal is reached Backers will be able to choose T-Shirt Sizes and cup colors.

Risks and challenges

We created the design for the Sidesip as well as the first and second prototypes. The initial goal was to create a functional product that was also well designed and attractive.

We are patent pending and have trademarked the Sidesip name. We have met with multiple manufacturers and have decided on the one that will produce the product. We are using Kickstarter to raise the monies needed for the initial production mold for the top.
