Summer months are some of the most dangerous for teen drivers, as they face risks of increased impaired, reckless and distracted driving. To help educate teens on these dangers, Ford Motor Company Fund partnered with the Ohio Department of Public Safety's Office of Criminal Justice Services and Westfield Insurance to offer free Ford Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) safe-driving clinics to eligible Ohio teen drivers.
Some of the nation's top professional driving instructors trained teen drivers with free half-day driving classes in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland throughout the month of July. Ford Driving Skills for Life spokesperson, singer Kate Voegele, came back to her home state of Ohio to help bring some added excitement to the 2012 Ohio Summer Tour. Enrollment was available to the public, for drivers ages 15-19 who have a driver's permit or license.
