Da Nang (VNA) – Ford Vietnam Limited Company launched Ford Driving Skills for Life, a programme on improving essential safe driving skills, in central Da Nang city on June 9.

Ford Vietnam aims to provide training for at least 1,500 drivers this year, raising the number of beneficiaries to 13,000 since the programme began in 2008.

Under this programme, the company will bring its safe driving courses to public transport companies in key localities as well as students of big universities in Vietnam.

Ford Vietnam General Director Pham Van Dung said traffic safety is of critical importance. Aside from basic safe driving skills, this year’s programme will provide knowledge suitable to each locality and circumstance for drivers.

At the programme launching ceremony, the Ford Foundation and Ford Vietnam presented eight “drunk suits” to the National Traffic Safety Committee to support driver training centres in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang.

The Ford Foundation also announced that it will provide 50 cameras for traffic surveillance in Da Nang so as to help ensure a civilised, safe and convenient traffic environment.-VNA
