Is it Mother Rider’s job to declare national holidays? Ordinarily, no. But just this once, in honor of the double special occasion, I’m going to make an exception to the general rule. So here goes…
In honor of our Dad, who also happens to be the father of salubrious driving, and to celebrate our new book, which is dedicated to him in loving memory, I hereby declare his birthday, November 22nd, the first ever
National Salubrious Driving Day
And if you all will kindly head on over to the petition and sign it, then ask all your friends to sign it too, and they ask their friends, and so on, by next year at this time we may be able to persuade the nice folks in Washington to make it official. Because let’s face it, salubriety is a worthy goal, but doesn’t always come naturally. We could use a little support out here!
So what is this salubrious talk about anyway? Well, it’s about creating a Happy World of Safe and Healthy Driving together.
You can read all about it in our new book:
Riders on the Road:
How to Laugh More and Rage Less
with The Rider Method.
Riders on the Road is one of those charming little humor books that, oh by the way, shows you how to laugh your driving cares away, with The Rider Method and its companion 8 Step program. The second edition is bigger and better, with more entertaining stories, provocative questions and practical driving advice for regular American drivers like you and me. But this is more than just a book; it’s a movement, which is why we need a genuine holiday and sure appreciate your support.
What does our Dad the ace professional driver have to say about this? Oh, boy, we wish he were here to tell you himself. Sadly, Dad’s gone on ahead to St. Peter’s Heavenly Bar & Grill, but here’s a quote that he left behind:
Read and heed the lessons from the road that I’ve passed on to my children, and you too shall learn how to laugh off your driving woes and become happier and more salubrious behind the wheel. It takes only a lick of sense and a few bucks to spend on my daughter’s entertaining and informative book, Riders on the Road. Friends, I devoted well over 30 years to teaching myself salubrious driving. You only have to read the book and do what she says. My advice is to do it now. And remember, salubrious means healthy and safe, not slow.
Could you use a little more peace and harmony on the road? We can help. For the complete scoop, and to enjoy a little Roadside Revue, check out our website at www.RidersontheRoad.com.
As Dad says…
Let there be peace on the road, and let the drivers thereon all be salubrious, even happy, and their passengers too. And hey, why not the bicycle riders and the pedestrians while we’re at it. Let’s all get salubrious. Now! This means you!
Yes, Sir. We are on it. Happy Birthday, Dad! This book’s for you.
And Happy Salubrious Driving Day to all 🙂
