Ford Motor Company Partners With Windham High School
by Barbara O’Brien A rare opportunity is coming to Windham High School, something that has not previously been offered north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Ford Motor Company’s “Driving Skills for Life” program is being made available to seniors at Windham High School, something Principal Tom Murphy said is typically done way down south, due largely to generally less treacherous winter driving conditions in southern states. For the first time ever, however, Ford Motor Company is bringing the safer driver program to New Hampshire. On Wednesday, September 21, the program will be presented at

Windham High School, one day later it will take place at Sanborn Regional High School. The purpose of the program, Murphy commented, is to promote better skills for novice drivers.” “ London Bridge Road is challenging in bad weather for anyone,” Murphy said of the hilly, twisting road that leads to the entrance to the two-year old Windham High School. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death among teenagers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that distracted driving may contribute to up to 80 percent of auto accidents; nearly 6,000 teens die annually in such accidents. Driving while texting has become a major traffic safety issue, especially with teenage drivers. However, there are a multitude of equally dangerous distractions while driving: talking on a hand-held phone or with an earpiece, eating or drinking, changing the radio station, reading a map (paper or electronic), applying make-up, or chatting with passengers, are examples. Distractions sharply elevate the risk of an accident, even more so with novice drivers. Teens are extremely vulnerable to driver distractions because they lack experience and don’t fully appreciate the serious risks involved in getting behind the wheel of an automobile. According to a representative of the Ford Motor Company, the firm recently became the first automaker to endorse a Federal ban on manually sending text messages on hand-held devices while driving. It is also committed to helping reduce teen auto accidents and fatalities through its Ford Driving Skills for Life teen safety program, he said. The program offers hands- on training in a classroom setting and behind the wheel of specially equipped vehicles that simulate wet or potentially dangerous driving conditions. The online training modules are designed to help teens recognize and avoid driving distractions. There are five different learning units followed by a quiz to test each student’s knowledge, focusing on speed management, space management, vehicle handling, and hazard recognition. Ford also offers hands-on training in which teens are placed on controlled

courses to test their concentration. Instructors prompt the drivers to visually and verbally interact with passengers, manually operate the radio, climate controls, and electronic devices such as cell phones and MP3 players. By increasing the distractions, these modules help the teenaged driver recognize and avoid dangerous behaviors. The Driving Skills for Life Website also offers short video spots providing a variety of driving tips to both teens and adults, and features instructors from the Driving Skills for Life “ride- and drive” events. These lessons teach teens what to do if the passenger-side wheels leave the road, how to recover in a skid, proper sitting for safe driving, how to brake safely, how to anticipate danger, and when it is important to slow down. An additional incentive for students to take the mandatory on-
line driver safety course is that many of them who successfully complete the program will be given the opportunity to drive a brand new Ford Mustang. Those participating in the actual driving program will be given the opportunity to drive one of the Mustangs around the school parking lot with a professional driver sitting in the passenger’s seat. Murphy said a total of 72 students, all seniors, will be given the opportunity to take one of Ford’s iconic sports cars out for a spin.
Although there are 125 seniors currently enrolled at Windham High School, Murphy said he feels that there will be some who are just not interested in participating in the Driving Skills for Life program and that he hopes the 72 slots will be sufficient to accommodate all who are interested. Murphy said he hopes that Ford will make this an annual event, so that other students will also get a turn at the wheel of a shiny new Mustang. Murphy did not comment on whether any of the Mustangs would have a standard transmission or would be a convertible. Murphy said that there would be no cost to the Windham
School District for the program. The approximate $30,000 price tag will be born completely by Ford Motor Company. The Windham Police Department will also be involved in the September 21 event, Murphy noted. “This is a great advantage to our kids,” school board member
Jeff Bostic said. “Anything we can do to encourage safe driving is great,” school board Chairman Ed Gallagher added. The driving skills program is being held in conjunction with the Governor’s Highway Safety Alliance. School board members voted to move forward with the
program by a vote of 4 to 0. Voting in favor were Ed Gallagher, Jeff Bostic, Michelle Farrell and Stephanie Wimmer. Vice Chairman Bruce Anderson did not attend the September 6 meeting where the vote was taken.
