Providing fully updated advice to parents, guardians, and other adults who supervise teen drivers, this second edition of Not So Fast will help to guide and empower readers. Parents will learn priceless information in teaching teenagers how to evaluate the circumstances of every driving trip, how to say "no" when necessary, how to prepare a "flight plan" for each drive, and how to put safety before convenience. Parents will also benefit by understanding the real dangers and risks in teen driving by recognizing the limits of driver training programs and will thus becoming more informed and proactive in their supervisory role. Current statistics, updated research, and additions dealing with hands-free devices as well as drowsy driving, make this new edition a valuable resource for anyone concerned about teen drivers. Proceeds from sales will support a memorial fund—set up in honor of Hollister's son, Reid, who was killed in an automobile accident in 2006—which subsidizes education and other traffic safety causes.
