Ford and Governors Highway Association Working to Teach Teens Safe Driving Skills
USA- American automaker, Ford, has partnered with the Governors Highway Association to provide new drivers with courses focused on safe driving skills. The classes will be available in eighteen American cities. In total, 80 clinics are planned, and teens and their parents can sign up and take the class free of charge.
Ford explained that the clinics are going to address some of the common driving risks that cause teens to be involved in collisions. Topics covered include handling a vehicle, speed, distractions, recognizing hazards, and drunk driving.
According to a spokesperson for Ford Driving Skills for Life, teens still make up a high percentage of drivers involved in and tragically killed in car crashes. The classes started late January in Orlando. This will be the program’s seventeenth year operating. Drivers who take the course will learn in specially equipped vehicles that will teach students how to gain proper control of a vehicle in the event a driver loses traction. Instructors help teach new drivers real-life experiences in a safe and controlled environment in the hopes that when these drivers meet these obstacles on the road, they will be prepared.
