Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a meet and greet with Ford Motor Company and their innovative program, Ford Driving Skills For Life. It was amazing to see all of the great things that Ford does to help ensure that teenagers are safe on the road, along with some insights into how they take in to consideration the needs of expectant mothers, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities when they’re building cars.
I started my session with an overview of the Ford Driving Skills For Life Program from Kate Dennis. Kate explained how this program was established by Ford to provide teens an opportunity to learn safe driving tips. As newly licensed drivers, it’s imperative they learn how to navigate in challenging environments (e.g. Large Trucks, Rain, etc.). But, they also are taught how to recognize these challenges, and handle their vehicle more effectively. Check out this video about the program.
