Addressing Transportation Risks with Youth Groups
The dangers of distracted driving and inexperienced drivers.

This video, the third in a series by Richard Hammar on six legal risks for church youth pastors, describes the threats of distracted driving, the use of inexperienced drivers, and the legal liabilities churches may assume by not fully knowing their state's laws. These threats are important to note, especially because so many youth group activities rely upon staff, and upon volunteer drivers, including youth old enough to drive, to drive members to events.

Part One of this series addresses the risks of inappropriate texting between youth pastors and teens.

View the entire six-part series on Richard Hammar's YouTube channel.
