One of the most dangerous decisions drivers can ever make is to choose to drive while intoxicated. Alcohol and other drugs can significantly impair a person’s driving abilities, which places not only themselves, but those around them in danger! Ford has set out to demonstrate just how serious this scenario is using new technology.
According to a Ford press release, a Drugged Driving Suit has been added to the Ford Driving Skills for Life program.
The Ford Driving Skills for Life initiative is a program that Ford launched 13 years ago. Its mission is to exhibit the dangerous situations that driving while impaired can create.
This new Drugged Driving Suit technology helps replicate how difficult it is to operate a vehicle while under the effects of drugs.
“Our 2016 program features some of the newest and most innovative tools available to teach new drivers to be safe and make sound decisions behind the wheel,” said Jim Graham, manager of Ford Driving Skills for Life. “Our new Drugged Driving Suit is intended to complement our Drunk Driving Suit, giving students a critical eye into the consequences of impaired driving.”
Please make the responsible decision to never operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
