Ford Continues ‘Driving Skills for Life’ Programme in Myanmar to help raise awareness of road safety

Ford Motor Company continued its global Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) driver safety programme in Myanmar by hosting a series of DSFL workshops in Yangon on 28-29 May.
More than 100 drivers – including civil servants, media, Ford customers and members of the community – participated in four half-day DSFL workshops free-of-charge.
The DSFL programme aims to raise awareness of road safety, and help to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries, by helping educate drivers on the skills and techniques needed to drive more safely.
Organized in partnership with Ford’s local distributor partners, Capital Automotive and the RMA Group, trainers from the RMA Academy led the DSFL training.
“Ford is committed to helping raise awareness of road safety and educating drivers on safe driving practices and techniques, and helping make Myanmar’s roads safer for everyone,” said Mike Pease, general manager, Capital Automotive.
“We are proud to continue this DSFL and provide Myanmar drivers with the tools and resources they need to drive safely,” said Pease.
The programme is conducted through a mix of classroom and practical training sessions where drivers are offered a hands-on driving experience.
In addition to encouraging safe driving and address the rising number of road accidents, the programme also aims to provide economic benefits through tips on fuel-efficient driving, which often times are the same tips for safe driving.
An emphasis on the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol was incorporated as part of the programme. This included having participants wear specially designed goggles that help simulate the experience of driving while movement, coordination and alertness are impaired.—GNLM Ford Motor Company continued its global Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) driver safety programme in Myanmar by hosting a series of DSFL workshops in Yangon on 28-29 May.
