About the Book

Road Warriors – Life Lessons is an inspiration. It is based on personal knowledge of experiences learned in driving lessons taught the author by her father.

Power dominates the driver of a vehicle as he takes the vehicle out onto an open road. The sense of command and control equally affects males and females.

Maneuvering a vehicle skillfully is not a child’s experience to be taken lightly. There are lessons gleaned from the narrator of this book of real-life ventures. Schoolinstructed driver’s education courses combined with parental supervision mold preteen and teen lessons.

This book demonstrates safety and guidance through actions bent toward humor and realism. Driving is a privilege offered during teen years. That privilege comes with responsibility to be viewed seriously by all drivers.

The humor illustrated in the storyline is easily adaptable to the readers’ everyday life involving the world of driving a vehicle. It is much easier to grin or laugh at another person’s errors or mishaps than own them. Better to experience through third-party humor than actually feel the effects of any of the book’s scenarios.

Driving defensively is an art. Safety first does not mean much until driving students think of that safety in terms of his life and the lives of others on the road. One Life Lesson -- “Remember sheet metal can be replaced; body parts are not easily repaired. Vehicles roll off an assembly line, not your body.”

We encounter so many experiences up close and personal when learning to drive a vehicle. Let those experiences be due to safe, defensive driving techniques.
