This one day training will enlighten young drivers about road safety and will teach them innovative ways of driving safely.

Both road and track driving techniques will be taught while special care will be given to highlight the aspects of hazardous driving, speed, handling, prevention from distractions and space management. Some of the tasks include experiencing the hazards of talking on the mobile phone while driving, changing radio channels or CDs, dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs etc.

The course also trains young drivers in dealing with emergency situations such as first aid on deserted locations, techniques to determine and prevent skidding in high speed, emergency braking and vehicle maneuvering etc. Ford claims that their initiative will help reduce the number of accidents on the road by close to half the current number by 2020. Ford plans on rolling out this training course in Italy, Germany and France.

The expedition is costing Ford Motors £1.2 million although the company is taking the initiative in order to address the issue of public safety. Ford will be providing units of the Focus and the Fiesta for the training. Speeding and talking on the cell phone while driving are the two major causes of accidents today and Ford will be incorporating education within the training program. Road Safety is an important issue and as a result Ford feels that the youth must be enlightened.
