Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan have been offered driving lessons by Goodyear.
So tire maker Goodyear has decided to offer the actresses some assistance. They've sent letters to both women
offering them free trips to the company's Ohio headquarters for a private safe driving lesson with a Goodyear professional driver at the company's track. ("No paparazzi allowed!" chirps the letter.)
The letter, signed by a company vice-president, mentions that Lohan and Bynes have "struggled behind the wheel before" and note that "driving can be a real challenge." The letter also pitches Goodyear tires and dealers, of course.
Lohan's letter, as shown on the site of Ohio TV station WEWS, even gets in a mention of her role in 2005's "Herbie: Fully Loaded," joking that she'll soon "be able to show even Herbie the Lovebug a thing or too." WEWS reports
that Bynes' letter refers to her role in 1990s hit "All That," saying, "It’s okay -- not all of us can be all that on the road."
If the women aren't willing to fly to Ohio for their lessons, Goodyear also offers to send a professional driver to them. No word on whether the actresses will take the company up on the offer. Perhaps they should just hire chauffeurs.
