A driving skills event for teens has been around for nearly a decade… but is constantly having to change with the times.
For example, this year’s Ford’s Driving Skills for Life event at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport is devoting part of its training to the hazards of a recent phenomenon… the “driving selfie.”
Trained instructors show kids how even taking their eyes off the road and hand off the wheel for a couple of seconds to take that picture can have disastrous results.
Selected students from schools that won safe driving competitions are taking part in the event on a controlled course at the airport. The two-day event concludes today.
