Ford Hosts Driving Skills For Life ‘Virtual Assembly’

Remember school assemblies?

They’re still a thing. And Ford’s Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) program, now in its fourteenth year, just hosted a “virtual assembly” online to teach high school students across the country all about the dangers of impaired and/or distracted driving. Ford points out that now is a prudent time to do it, as prom season is right around the corner, and the gathering does often tend to produce a few distracted (and/or inebriated) students.

The 40-minute virtual assembly was conducted by the professional drivers and instructors from Ford DSFL, streaming from the lobby of the Ford Rouge Factory Visitor Center.

“Prom is both an exciting yet dangerous time of year for teen drivers,” says Ford DSFL Global Manager James Graham. “One of the biggest distractions is additional passengers. We talk to teens about limiting the amount of people in their vehicle as well as buckling-up. Ultimately, we hope that with this assembly we can positively impact teens to make the right choice behind-the-wheel and make it home safely.”

Of course, the Driving Skills for Life program’s real claim to fame is that its offered hands-on driver training to more than a million newly-licensed drivers around the world. Ford’s 2017 tour with the program will bring it around to a total of 15 markets in the US, including California, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, and Maine.
