Shipman & Goodwin attorney Tim Hollister, a leader in a statewide task force on Connecticut’s teen driving laws, has launched a national blog for parents on safe teen driving.  Tim lost his son Reid in a one-car accident on Interstate 84 in Plainville, Connecticut, in December 2006.  During 2007-08, as a member of Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell’s Safe Teen Driving Task Force, Hollister immersed himself in the issue of why driving is the leading cause of death for teens, and became an advocate for better-informed parental decision-making about teen driving.  In memory of Reid, and in support of our colleague Tim, the School Law Practice Group is making the information Tim has gathered on teen drivers available to Connecticut school professionals utilizing our website as an educational resource.  The blog, “From Reid’s Dad,” is found at
