Not So Fast by Tim Hollister Book PDF Summary
Most of the information available to parents of teen drivers acknowledges that driving is risky, and then advises parents that their obligation is to teach their teens how to operate a vehicle—but little more. Missing from most available resources are explanations of why teen driving is so dangerous, and specific, proactive steps that parents can take day-by-day, each time a teen driver gets behind the wheel, to counteract the situations that most often lead to crashes. Not So Fast fills this gap in the existing literature, providing advice to parents, guardians, and other adults who supervise teen drivers about the critical decisions that must be made before a teen drives. Not So Fast empowers and guides parents to: • Evaluate the circumstances of every driving trip • Be able to say “No” when necessary • Prepare a “flight plan” for each drive • Become an informed, proactive supervisor • Control distracted driving and texting • Put safety before convenience • Manage curfews, and much more Since losing his 17-year-old son Reid in a one-car crash in 2006, Tim Hollister has became a national authority and spokesperson for safer teen driving, serving on a Connecticut state task force to overhaul his state's teen driving laws; launching From Reid’s Dad, a national blog for parents of teen drivers; appearing as an expert commentator on regional TV and radio; and being awarded the US Department of Transportation Public Service Award, the nation’s highest civilian award for traffic safety. Sandy Spavone is the executive director of National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS), a coalition of national organizations that promote youth empowerment and leadership and build partnerships that save lives, prevent injuries, and enhance safe and healthy lifestyles among all youth.
