Clutter Free Cars
Products to Aid in Organizing Your Vehicle

High Road brand, specializing in car organization, recently showcased 25 new products that respond to increasing driver concerns. With nearly 80 percent of all US domestic trips now taken by car, truck or RV, car organization has never been so important from safety, time and stress perspectives. Many drivers are looking for solutions to fight the clutter from daily commutes, summer vacations, and being the family taxi, as well as minimize the dangers of reaching for things while driving.

According to research:  

  • 89 percent of female drivers say that being organized in their car makes them safer drivers and helps them keep their eyes on the road. If children are organized and have easy access to toys and drinks, they are less likely to distract the driver.

  • 30 percent of female drivers surveyed, aged 18-34, say they have either had, or almost had, an accident because they were reaching for or looking for something in their car.

  • Commuting time has grown 236 percent with the average commute now taking over 26 minutes. With more time spent on the road by the nation's 34 million commercial fleet drivers, there is greater pressure for both domestic and professionals to stay organized in their cars.

Arthur Woolverton, National Sales Manager of Talus Corporation, which owns High Road brand, says"Both retailers and research are telling us that most drivers think of their car as another living space and say there is a constant battle to keep their cars organized. Many are looking for organization in their lives while they're on the go, especially the Taxi Moms."

In response, Talus has developed these new products, which offer solutions for driver organization, entertainment organization, back seat organization, cargo and trunk organization and trash management.
