I have been aware of this program for some time and am fully committed to spreading the word on this awesome program which is provided for free by Ford to help save teen lives”, said Tammie Davis. Davis, a decorated U.S. Marine Veteran and award winning country singer, will use her passion for teen safe driving to assist the Ford Driving Skills for Life team in educating parents and teens on the leading cause of teen deaths – vehicle crashes. “We are very pleased to work with Tammie Davis”, said Jim Graham, Global Manager Ford Driving Skills for Life. “Tammie is truly dedicated to the cause of teen safe driving and has multiple platforms to assist in getting the word out to parents and teens on this very important issue.”
About Ford Driving Skills for Life: Ford 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 program is international in scope, touching not only the United States but many areas around the world. The basic premise behind Ford Driving Skills for Life is to provide a step in the leaning process, providing new skills and information not currently shared with newly licensed drivers in the basic driver education courses.
