A TRUE STORY YOU MUST READ!
Although it may be hard to imagine, but there was a time in history where the world was without automobiles. At that time people traveled from place to place by foot, by mule, by camel, by horse, and by wagon. Since the invention of the first automobile by the French engineer Nicolas Joseph Cugnot in 1789, everywhere you look, Trucks, Minivans, Sedans, Coupes, and Sport cars, fill our neighborhood streets and the highways.
The automotive breakthrough has provided us with greater ability to move faster and easily from place to place. More importantly, the breakthrough has transformed the human mind, and created a universal love for driving. This was the beginning of the driving movement. We love our cars, show-off in them, and most of the time enjoy driving. So everyone that drives is a part of this "MOVEMENT", and therefore, part of Hey Mom! or Hey Dad! can I drive?
HEY MOM! CAN I DRIVE? or HEY DAD! CAN I DRIVE? - is a reality board game of driving for children, families, and anyone that drives. It is the only board game of its kind designed with complete traffic signs and street configurations for people to play, compete, and enjoy like in real-life. So please come join me with your donations, and let's make this game a reality, and make history together.
