National Teen Safe Driving Program Visits Yukon High School to Address Leading Cause of Death for U.S. Teens

 

 

WHAT:                     The Ford Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) hands-on teen driving program is coming to Yukon, OK as part of a national effort to address the number one killer of teens in the U.S: car crashes. The free program will be making a two day stop at Yukon High School to offer an educational program and tips for parents and the community, as well as advanced behind-the-wheel training for teen drivers. Local teens will have the chance to train in specially equipped vehicles and learn how to improve their skills in four key areas: hazard recognition, vehicle handling, space management and speed management. Distracted driving will also be covered.

 

WHO:                       Yukon High School Students who are newly licensed drivers or who hold a valid learners permit are invited to participate in a free hands-on training program that will put students in real-world driving scenarios in a controlled environment so that they are equipped with knowledge that could save their lives in the future. Parents and members of the community are invited to attend the school assembly on April 11 at 8:35 a.m. in the Yukon High School gymnasium, where instructors will encourage them to get involved in the learning process by setting a good example while in the car. Kate Voegle, Ford’s celebrity spokesperson will also give a free concert to those in attendance.

DETAILS:                 The Ford Driving Skills for Life program was created in 2003 in conjunction with the Governors Highway Safety Association to provide teens with the skills and experience they need to become safer drivers. In Oklahoma in 2011, 59 teens died as a result of car crashes, 30 of them were behind-the-wheel at the time of the crash. Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among teenagers in the U.S., claiming more than 3,000 teen lives each year.
