A pesar de una disminución del 56 por ciento en la muerte adolescente entre 2005 y 2014, los conductores adolescentes siguen siendo 1,6 veces más propensos a participar en un accidente fatal que los adultos de 35 a 40 años de edad. Además, los conductores adolescentes mayores (18-20) están involucrados en accidentes más fatales que los conductores más jóvenes. En su 14º año, Ford Driving Skills for Life ha proporcionado capacitación gratuita a más de 1 millón de conductores recién licenciados en 35 países; Esto equivale a una inversión de más de $ 40 millones Ford se ha comprometido a promover la seguridad en el camino.
