Please scroll to the bottom of this page to see what people who DO NOT have the Roadside Message Board use when they have car trouble.

The Roadside Message Board is the latest in road safety and protection. Although it was invented to aid motorists when a vehicle needs to be left unattended, it has a thousand other uses. One of the reasons that people need the Roadside Message Board is that many cell phones don't work in remote or rural areas because of poor reception. Many people use cell phones to call for help and leave their cars unattended in the process. 

The Message Board is about the size of a standard license plate, so it fits comfortably under most car seats or above the sun visor. The next time you  find yourself  in a crowed parking lot late at night, just pull out your Message Board, moisten the soft suction cups and activate the attention-getting flashing red light. Attach it to your windshield and you'll never have trouble finding your car again. It can also be used for messages around the house, at the office or on store fronts.

How can the Message Board be used around the house, at the office or on store fronts? 

The reversible suction cups allow the Message Board to be used to leave a message for delivery drivers. 

Included in the package is a choice of 10 pre-printed messages to slip into the slot to specify your car problem. A dry-erase pen and a red flasher (lasting approx. 96 hours) are also included. This license plate-size message board with reversible suction cups can also be used for non-emergency messages, store front or home. This is a necessity for every vehicle, this would make the perfect gift !!! It is assembled by companies who employ handicapped people to do the work.

Included with your Message Board are the following 10 pre-printed messages which slip into the slot and specify your car problem.

  1. Car Trouble

  2. Please Do Not Ticket

  3. Be Back In ____ Minutes
