Not So Fast
Reid Hollister was a great kid. Who didn't go to his senior prom or graduate from high school. The car Reid was driving skidded on a rain-slicked highway. Reid was just 17 when he died.
Reid's father -- a friend of mine -- has channeled his grief into helping other parents and their teen drivers. Tim Hollister's blog -- From Reid's Dad -- gets 12,000 visitors each month.
Monday night Tim and other experts spoke about teen driver safety at a Hartford church. The occasion was the launch of Tim's new book Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving. Publishers Weekly called the book a "concise, practical, and potentially life-saving book" that should be "required reading for every parent before their teen gets behind the wheel."
