Ford Driving Skill for Life (DSFL) was established in 2003 by Ford Motor Company Fund, the Governors Highway Safety Association, and a panel of safety experts to teach newly licensed teens the necessary skills for safe driving beyond what they learn in standard driver education programs. The FREE, comprehensive program, Ford DSFL, helps young drivers improve their skills in four key areas that are critical factors in more than 60% of vehicle crashes including: Hazard Recognition, Vehicle Handling, Speed Management, and Space Management.
Vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of teenagers in America. Nearly 5,000 teens die annually in such accidents, according to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Because of inexperience, many teens lack the skills and knowledge required to be safe drivers. Statistics demonstrate that teen involvement in crashes declines considerably as young drivers gain experience.
