FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Alan Brown and Drive Smart Georgia hosted an event at South Forsyth High School on Oct. 11.
Alan Brown is the founder of Joshua’s Law in Georgia and 13 other states. Brown lost his son in 2003 due to a fatal car crash. Alan decided to turn his grief for the death of his son into a crusade to promote teen driver safety with Joshua’s Law.
The purpose of this event was to get students thinking about the responsibilities that come with their newfound freedom of driving and to open a discussion about the dangers of teen driving.
During the event, Brown gave a speech about how he felt receiving the notice about his son’s death. Then both he and Kirk Bressette, Co-Founder/CEO of Drive Smart Georgia discussed the dangers of distracted driving, alcohol and drugs, and other potential hazards behind the wheel.
