This could have been the headline on the local news.
Thankfully it wasn’t.
So how could a purse possibly injure a family of four?
All too easily, if there had been a car full of people beside me when the following happened.
I was driving along on a beautiful sunny day; when a traffic light turned amber. Slowing down quickly to stop for the light, I frantically tried to grab my purse as it was flying off the passenger seat to spill on the floor.
My car swerved, as I grasped my flying bag; nearly losing control of my car as I stepped on the brakes.
When my car stopped I was partially in the lane beside me, and fortunately, there wasn’t another car in this lane.
This episode shook me up enough to vow to myself that I would never again risk my life or someone else's, on something as unimportant as a purse

And I, of all people, should have know better. Many years ago my own life was shattered by a fatal distracted driving accident.
This was long before anyone had heard the term distracted driving; but that's exactly what it was that caused the loss life for one, and the lives of many; to change forever in the seconds it took to change a cassette in the tape deck.
I NEEDED SOMETHING TO GRAB MY PURSE...I NEEDED A PURSE SNATCHER
I wanted to create something that would help me break my habit of automatically reaching out my arm to block my bag when braking and to protect my purse from being battered and scattered about the floor of my car.
I knew I wanted something that didn't need to be removed or moved when someone sat in the passenger seat. Something that could be used in back seats too, so I wouldn't have to put my purse on the rear seat floor.
After much trial and error; The Purse Snatcher® was ready for action.

These days The Purse Snatcher® also safely secures my new Granddaughter's diaper bag.
