What is Driver Bubble?

The Driver Bubble is a protective shield made from rigid polycarbonate plastic. The shield is only 0.05in thick shield which is more than adequate in terms of strength and durability. It reduces the direct contact between a driver and a passenger, limiting the transmission of germs, improving hygiene and preventing passengers from reaching the front seat. It is more comfortable, safe, and secure for both sides.
