Road Safety Speaker
Recent studies pronounce that each year over 1.2 million people worldwide – die on the road. If a health issue caused those deaths, it would be remarked as an epidemic. Tens of millions of dollars have been used in order to understand the cause of crashes, but a prevalent problem is ’lack of due care and attention’ which mostly signifies the driver’s distraction.
Perry McCarthy is passionate about his strong message for the necessity to be fully concentrated while driving. There is an urge for focus, the need for awareness, the obligation to predict and the necessity for common sense, self-control, and tolerance. His philosophy is pretty simple. It is manageable and doable by the standard driver and is intended to saves lives. As always though, Perry’s speeches are pleasant and charming, but he uses that manner to keep the audience to get these essential principles.

Then as he rose through the ranks of global motorsport, he required more investment, which he in that time did not have. Instead of declaring “this is impossible” Perry McCarthy relentlessly searched for the needed sponsorship to make his dream of becoming a Grand Prix driver come true. There were countless tough times for Perry and his young family, but he didn’t want to give up, either with his professional or personal life. Each time finding a way to make his dreams happen.
