Drinking and driving tragedies aren’t accidents—they can be prevented. Read this book, watch the film, and start talking with your teen now. On a typical weekend in America, one teenager dies in a car crash every hour. Almost half of the crashes involve alcohol. This book, and the accompanying DVD of the Parents’ Choice award–winning HBO documentary Smashed: Toxic Tales of Teens and Alcohol, aim to help parents talk to their teen about drinking and driving by challenging the “It can’t happen to me” myth. Safe Road Home takes a brutally honest look at this subject, featuring detailed advice, new research, and safe-driving tips from leading experts. For parents and teens alike, the book also includes quizzes, solutions to everyday scenarios, a Smashed viewing guide, and true stories about teens who survived alcohol-related crashes—and some who did not. Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon are a husband-and-wife documentary filmmaking team. Three-time Academy Award® nominees, their films for HBO, PBS, and National Geographic have also won numerous Emmy® Awards and have been screened at film festivals worldwide, from Sundance to Berlin. They are both active members of the Writers Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Their production entity, the Simon & Goodman Picture Company, is based in New York City, where they live with their two children.
