I am not now nor have I been a fan of GEICO since we parted ways in 1996, however, I do believe in giving credit where credit is due.

With the help of the American Moving and Storage Association, GEICO has create a brochure for its site entitled "Teens & Trucks". This addition to GEICO's library of safe driving materials for teen drivers is an attempt to keep teens informed on safe practices as well as keep car insurance prices at a reasonable rate. This information is geared towards teens that are now learning to drive. It includes tips like:
  • Stay out of a truck's blind spots or "No Zones"
  • Be careful when attempting to pass a truck.
  • Do not swerve in front of a truck or cause the driver to come to a sudden stop

About the Author:

Who Is Michelle Davis?

I was born and raised in the city of Chicago on the southside to Izora Davis and Dwight Moore. I was raised in the Woodlawn community up until the age of thirteen. We then relocated to public housing - better known as "the projects" on 42nd and Lake Park where I must say, I found myself.

I began writing at the age of ten after reading my mother's collection of Harlequin Mystery novels. I can't recall the name of the one book that inspired me to write my own mystery but I am grateful for it. It was all of about twenty-four pages - a lot for a ten year old to write and my teacher allowed me to read it to the class. The response I got was so powerful that it set me on the road I find myself travelling today.

My second creation came some years later when I was fourteen. I read it to some classmates and they loved it, further inspiring me to think "hmm, I've got something here". I realize that this is a calling for me and I only hope I respond well to it.
I was blessed with four beautiful children and I'm currently helping to raise my sweetheart's nephew. Although professionally I am a sociologist, I hope to focus on writing full time and devote all of my vested energies into my passion.

But a lot of that depends on you, so hopefully I have garnered a fan base that can relate to the stories I have to tell.
