As part of this commitment, hundreds of local teen drivers are invited to participate in free Ford Driving Skills for Life hands-on clinics with professional drivers on April 5, 6 and 7. The award-winning program is aimed at reducing teen fatalities by providing hands-on training in advanced skills that address major contributors to traffic crashes involving new drivers. A recent report by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) shows that teen driver fatalities are on the rise among drivers aged 16-17.
During the event, Ford also will deliver two Ford Explorers to Irving Independent School District, and award a Ford Transit Connect van to the North Texas Food Bank.
The event will be held on Friday, April 5, 10:30 a.m. at the Fair Park Dallas (Enter Gate 13; look for large tent and DSFL signage).
