Ford’s ‘Driving Skills for Life’ Programme Expands to Students in the North of Peninsular Malaysia


Ford and Sime Darby Auto Connexion had recently continued the global Ford initiative Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) programme here in Malaysia. They had hosted workshops for students (DSFL is aimed at educating students on proper driving techniques) in Penang at the Han Chiang College.


The free-of-charge DSFL workshops were specially tailored to address the risks that young drivers face on the road, such as dealing with unexpected situations, the dangers of distracted driving such as use of mobile phones while behind the wheel, hazard recognition, speed management and the importance of ensuring child seats are securely fastened. 

I do hope that these lucky kids pick up all the techniques taught and apply them on our roads. I also would like to remind those that read this article to adhere to road regulations. So many of you out there on the roads do not use the turn signals, do not follow road signages around commercial areas and aren't that courteous in traffic jams.
