Online PR News – 26-September-2012 – Omaha, NE – Ford Motor Company’s teen driving safety campaign will be featured at Variety’s Power of Youth event at Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles. Atchley Ford in Omaha, NE is pleased to see Ford promoting such a good cause. This event honors young entertainers and their contributions to philanthropic organizations.

By attending this event, Ford’s widely recognized program Driving Skills for Life will be available to the hundreds of teens in attendance. It is a comprehensive program that takes teens through a driver distraction course and provides safe driving tips from professionals. The distraction course focuses on the importance of keeping hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.

Ford will also demonstrate some of its technologies that help make driving more comfortable, convenient, and safe, such as the MyKey system and active park assist. MyKey is a feature that allows parents to program car keys with specific limits such as muting the audio system until the front seats are buckled. There is also a feature that blocks incoming calls and text messages.

“We are excited to take part in an event that recognizes the commitment of young people to making a positive difference.” Said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services. “This is also a great opportunity for Ford to help elevate the conversation around teen driving safety.”
