Stroller Flag

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the majority of stroller accidents are caused by tipping. Whether caused by standing children, or unbalanced loads, the result is usually an abrasion or laceration.

However, a much more serious accident that doubles in number each year, is one involving a motor vehicle and a stroller.  Every year, hundreds of children are seriously injured or killed by otherwise cautious drivers that simply do not see a child stroller in a crosswalk or a parking lot.

Picture this real-life scenario:
You’re waiting at the cross walk with your baby in a stroller, trying to peek over the car parked on the side of the road to see if it’s clear so that you and your baby can cross safely.

It looks all clear. You push your stroller in front of you, and as the stroller is emerging from behind the parked car suddenly a car or truck comes speeding down the street or around the corner.

The driver does not see the stroller because it’s below his eye level, the driver does not see you because you are blocked by the parked car, the driver has no idea that your stroller and your baby are in his path.

After a near miss of his own, Brett Cohen, a New York father of three, felt compelled to find a solution.

With the go ahead from his wife, he started development on the Stroller Safety Flag. During the development process, Mr. Cohen continued hearing stories of tragedies from all over the U.S., and with news of each tragedy, he poured more time and resources into his invention.

The purpose of the Stroller Safety Flag is to slightly lead the stroller so the flag is seen before the stroller emerges. It mounts quickly, easily, and securely on all models of strollers through the use of a patent pending universal device. It can even be mounted horizontally to jogging strollers to prevent cars from getting too close.

Indoors, the flag can be instantly shortened to half its height.
The Stroller Safety Flag is also useful for ride-on toys, bicycles, and wheelchairs.
You can purchase it online at, where you can also get free reports on the 10 Biggest Safety Mistakes Parents Make, and the U.S.’s Most Dangerous Intersections.
