We’re back with another live show from Austin, TX!
One of the scariest times in the lives of parents (and grandparents) is when their teen children/grandchildren first receive their driver’s license. Will Thornton is a driving safety professional with over 15 years experience with having taught driving and given the road test in Washington state and presently in Sienna, Texas. Author of the book, Are We There Yet?, Will joins us to discuss the hidden epidemic of high risk driving and its most vulnerable victims of teens and new drivers and how his book addresses and offers a plan for drivers, parents of teens, and educators on how to address risk and why it’s essential for all drivers to see that well managed driving risk can and does reduce collisions and resulting deaths with the added benefit of lowered stress.
