Not So Fast is a public service to parents of teen drivers and the cause of traffic safety, particularly in the area of safe teen driving. Government officials and the public rely heavily on parents for assistance and cooperation to promote safety. The advice and insights in Not So Fast are a significant step toward that goal.” —Norman Mineta, former Secretary of US Department of Transportation

“I strongly recommend Not So Fast as evidence-based, sensible advice to parents seeking to make informed decisions as their teens become drivers. This is a highly readable and important guide.” —Allan F. Williams, former chief scientist, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
