Roadside Survival; Former Kansan Pens Book to Help Motorists

Breakdown prevention specialist Walt Brinker is a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and author of the book, Roadside Survival.  Since his first time helping a stranded motorist in Kansas, Brinker has assisted more than 2,000 motorists across America - free of charge.

Nearly all motorists have either had car trouble, or will at some point. Perhaps the worst kind of car trouble is a breakdown... far from home. Former Kansas resident Walt Brinker has assisted more than 2,000 motorists whose cars have given them trouble. He's also written a book that can help you help yourself. It's called Roadside Survival: Low-Tech Solutions to Automobile Breakdowns. KPR's J. Schafer learned that Brinker decided to compile his tips and tricks after years of acting as a roadside Good Samaritan.


Walt Brinker is author of the book, Roadside Survival: Low-Tech Solutions to Automobile Breakdowns. He was speaking with KPR's J. Schafer.
