"Driving in itself is not inherently dangerous, but to an even greater degree than flying and sailing, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect of the physics involved should they be disregarded by the driver"
Will Thornton, author of Are We There Yet?
In 2003 I went through the very agonizing emotional pain of losing my only son to a needless car crash. Several years later in 2006 I found myself wanting to honor his passing by becoming a driving coach. Since then my passion for "safe" driving evolved into my vision for a collision free driving experience for all drivers. In researching for the book you find here, I found that drivers over time become too complacent towards actual driving risk. From that came the vision to forward my passion and desire to reach far more drivers than just the ones I've taught on a daily basis. Thus, Zero Risk Now was born.
We all have habits of one kind or another that either serve us negatively or positively. The habits that have a negative impact on us can be very hard to undo and often have become addictive. These same habits can also harm us or help us.
The exercises in Are We There Yet? are designed to help make the changes needed to undo those habits that are high risk and transform them into low risk habits that will allow you to actually realize safe driving. An added bonus is also far less stress from dealing with aggressive high risk drivers.
"Be the change you want to see in the world"
The World Health Organization has declared that High-Risk driving is a world wide epidemic that has been ongoing since 2012. An average of over 1.3 million + lives are lost every year on the worlds roadways. The United States makes up approximately 4-6 % of that loss every year. An average of 200+ lives are lost every day! Take moment and think about that, 200 lives lost needlessly because of not paying attention to their risk taking. This is exactly why I wrote Are We There Yet? To shift the driving worlds unconscious awareness about un-needed risk taking from what we think is "SAFE" to do to being fully and consciously aware of Low-Risk driving habits in order to realize truly safe driving.
It is my hope you will join me in my vision for a collision-free and low stress driving world! My book is a good place to start but is only the beginning. It can only happen as each of us as individual drivers choose to see driving, not as a get there as soon possible situation, but more importantly a social obligation to care about the other drivers around us with the same need. To get to there destinations safely and alive!
Change is never an easy thing to accomplish. This especially true when it comes to our driving habits.
As the author of Zero Risk Now I seek through my book to bring a paradigm shift in how we all view driving. To move our thinking towards what actual driving risk is and is not. To move from what we “think” is safe to do and to think consciously about how what we do is either a high risk or low risk action to take or do.
