Did you know that the number one cause of teen deaths are vehicle crashes, claiming at least 2,700 young lives each year? I’m told locking my little girl in a castle tower like Rapunzel is frowned upon these days, so these are the two most important to me before she gets behind the wheel.
- I want her to be in as safe a car as possible. Are M1 Abrams Tanks street legal?
- I want her to have the best driving instruction possible. Mostly I guess that’s me?
As my dad did for me, I’ll annoy the crap out of her while teaching her to drive defensively, but there are some things that are hard for us parents to teach them on city streets. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce something super cool that the Ford Motor Company Fund is doing for teens here in North Texas:
Free Teen Advanced Driver Training Program
- Where: Fair Park Gate 13, 1121 First Avenue, Dallas, TX 75210
- When: Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7
- Time: Session 1: 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Session 2: 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
There are still time, it’s FREE, and it just may save your child’s life.
This is no ordinary driving instruction. Far from it! Teens will drive specially-equipped vehicles on road courses under the supervision of professional instructors. If you have a teenager with driver’s license or learner’s permit and some driving time (30 hours), you’ll want to jump on this opportunity.
Registration is limited, but slots are still available if you act now! Signed consent forms from parents are required. For more information and to register, please visit www.drivingskillsforlife.com. Please bring the signed waiver form and your teen’s driver’s license or permit with you to the event.

This is not a sponsored post. I’m not being paid to share this. I truly I believe it can save lives.
