Driving Guide, Eh? What’s the Big Idea? About Us, The Driving Guiders!
Welcome to the “About Us” page of Driving Guide. We’re not exactly sure what you want to know about us, but all the other cool kids have a page like this one on their sites and being as intimidated by peer pressure as the next web nerds…
Driving Guide is the product of a father and son team who love to drive, and it’s not our first rodeo. We’ve been in the online driving game for a while, predominately focused on driver safety courses. Depending on where you live, you might know these courses as defensive driving or traffic school and they’re mostly used for ticket dismissal. Did I say that we sometimes like to drive fast? Operating under the adage “Do what you know,” we wanted to help fellow ticket-getters get out of their tickets in as pain-free a way as possible.
Our efforts started in in our home state of Texas and, in recent years, we have expanded our attention nationwide. Apparently, people across the country leave late for work.
But Not Everyone’s a Speeder
As we looked at the numbers, we figured that one out. Law enforcement officials in Texas write approximately 750,000 moving violations a year, but there are over 25,000,000 Texans. That means that we were only positioned to help about 3% of the population at best, and there are a lot of players fighting over that sliver of pie.
Our look at the statistics caused us to ask questions about the other 97% of drivers and what we could do to help them. We started by looking at ourselves and our relationship with driving. We knew we loved to drive and figured that others must also, but what does that even mean? If you love to drive, is it because you:
- Are a dedicated gearhead?
- Love new car smell?
- Feel the call of the open road?
We also realized there are about a zillion other ways that people interact with vehicles and the driving environment, for instance:
- Some are looking to buy a vehicle
- Some are looking to sell one
- Some are looking for car insurance
- Some need to file a claim
- Some need to register a vehicle
- Some need to get one inspected
- Some truly love driving for driving’s sake
- Some hate to drive, but love the places their cars can take them
