Ford to Expand Driving Skills for Life to 40,000 Teens in 2013

Ford has announced that it will expand its Driving Skills for Life program in 2013, and Crossroads Ford in Frankfort, KY has all the details.

Online PR News – 12-March-2013 – Frankfort, KY – Ford is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Safe Driving Skills for Life program in 2013 and has announced plans to expand the program to teach even more teenage students safe driving techniques. Crossroads Ford in Frankfort, KY is proud to be part of a company that displays a commitment to safe driving and runs a program to instill those practices in the youth of America.

“Inexperience is the leading cause of crashes in young drivers, and Ford Driving Skills for Life includes a variety of engaging and targeted methods to deliver key skill sets that boost young drivers’ confidence and knowledge,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services. “Our mission is to make the roads safer for everyone.”

In 2013, the Ford Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) program will double in size to help approximately 40,000 high school students across the U.S. The DSFL program will partner with the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) in order to travel to around 200 high schools in 2013, where students will participate in activities to eliminate distracted driving and other common driving challenges.

“Ford’s commitment to partnering with states on teen driver education remains unprecedented,” said GHSA Chairman Kendell Poole. “With state and federal highway safety funding continuing to be limited, Ford’s support is increasingly critical.”
The goal of Ford’s DSFL program is to reduce the number of teenage fatalities from traffic accidents, which is currently the number one killer of American teens ages 16-19 at roughly 2,700 a year.
