Advancing Driver Safety
Douglas R. Horn founded The Horn Law Firm, P.C. in 1990. Since then, his law practice has increasingly concentrated in motor vehicle accident law and crash litigation. During the course of his legal career, including being involved in hundreds of accident investigations, Horn has gained an elevated insight into the driving behaviors that cause vehicular collisions.
Beginning in 2009, Horn has used his legal experience to devote a significant amount of his work and resources to the advancement of driver safety, particularly in the areas of teen driver protection, distracted driving prevention, and traffic fatality reduction.
To support his driver safety work, Horn developed Drive By Example, a traffic safety communications platform that influences drivers to adopt the safe driving habits and behaviors that protect themselves, their passengers, and others on the roadway. This year Horn will continue to promote Drive By Example as an effective tool in helping a variety of traffic safety stakeholders, including law enforcement, schools, hospitals, physicians, and private corporations, implement comprehensive driver safety programs.
In 2017, Horn is placing a special emphasis toward advancing teen driver protection. His plan is to publish a free Missouri Teen Driver Protection Guide. This guide, which is an expanded version of Horn’s 10 tips to protect teen drivers, is designed specifically for parents of teen drivers.
