The innovative Ford Driving Skills for Life recently introduced a “Drugged Driving Suit,” helping new drivers to understand the dangers of driving while impaired. This programs was especially expanded to focus on pedestrian safety, and can even be adjusted to represent drowsy driving.
According to Ford, this tour marks the 13th year for the Driving Skills for Life program, a clinic that takes place across the US and 34 other countries. This wide-ranging program lets new drivers learn invaluable skills they can use later on the road. The “Drugged Driving Suit” is a modification to the “Drunk Driving Suit” that appeared in 2013, helping drivers to understand the consequences of getting behind the wheel while impaired.
“Our 2016 program features some of the newest and most innovative tools available to teach new drivers to be safe and make sound decisions behind the wheel,” said Jim Graham, manager, Ford Driving Skills for Life. “Our new Drugged Driving Suit is intended to complement our Drunk Driving Suit, giving students a critical eye into the consequences of impaired driving.”
Driving Skills for Life will be stopping in Alabama, Arizona, California, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas. It will also be in South America, Europe, and Asia. So far, the program has reached a whopping 800,000 new drivers.
