The GUARDRIDE Story
Early one morning in 2013, I was driving to a funeral and started thinking about how fragile life was and how my worst fear was having my teenage daughter or son drive drunk and take their life or a friends.
Although I trust my kid’s judgment, I know that even a good kid can make a bad decision, and I can’t be there with them at a high school party or while they are away at college to make sure they make the right choices.
Since I didn’t want to be worrying every time my kids went out, I looked for a solution that could help…there was none.
So I created GUARDRIDE to give me and other parents a tool to help keep our kids safe from drinking and driving.
