Saving Lives by Teaching Teens: "Driving Skills for Life" Comes to W. Forsyth High

Saving Lives by Teaching Teens: "Driving Skills for Life" Comes to W. Forsyth High

Cumming, GA--  (submitted by Katie Fallon, GA Highway Safety)

With Spring rapidly approaching, more and more teens will be practicing their driving skills in preparation for the time-honored tradition of getting their license. It is also the time when many teens who are already behind the wheel will jump in the car with friends to head off for Spring Break.

With that in mind, the Ford “Driving Skills for Life” program will be coming to West Forsyth High School in Cumming for a teen driving safety fair tomorrow, February 24th.  Because car crashes remain the Number One killer of teenagers in Georgia and across the country, Ford is bringing the program directly to Georgia to equip our young drivers with the skills and knowledge to help keep them from becoming a tragic statistic.
