AKRON, Ohio - Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan have had their fair share of traffic troubles, so now Goodyear wants to help the stars get their acts together behind the wheel.
The Akron-based company sent Bynes and Lohan very similar letters saying they’d like to fly each out to their Akron headquarters for a private 1-on-1 lesson to get down the do’s and don’t’s of safe driving.
One stipulation though – no paparazzi allowed, Goodyear Vice President of Communications and Public Relations Chris Curran writes in the letter.
“We understand that you’ve struggled behind the wheel before, and that driving can be a real challenge, particularly trying to navigate all of the stop-and-go traffic in LA and New York City,” Curran writes.
Along with concern, the letters offer clever pop culture references alluding to the celebrities’ careers.
“Once you get a few laps under your belt, you’ll even be able to Herbie the Lovebug a thing or two,” Curran writes to Lohan, the star of “Herbie, Fully Loaded.”
Curran makes a nod to Bynes’ child acting past, writing “It’s okay – not all us can be all that on the road.” Bynes gained her initial fame as a star of the Nickelodeon show “All That.”
Lately though both Bynes and Lohan have been making news not for their on-screen endeavors but instead in-car issues.
Lohan allegedly hit a pedestrian and drove away from the scene Wednesday morning in New York City. Lohan has been arrested multiple times for DUI.
Bynes has had numerous traffic violations and crashes in the past six months .
