Mopar is introducing a new program that will help teach young drivers in Detroit. It is an advanced driving program called “Mopar Road Ready.” The hope is that this will help teenagers learn safer driving techniques and help teach a new generation of drivers to stay safe on the road.
The program is a collaboration between the FCA Foundation and the National Hot Rod Association, Motorsports Museum, and B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe).
The month of April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and seems like the perfect time to take the initiate in promoting safe driving habits. Mopar is going a step further than just the program and is inviting families to talk with their children and promote better habits such as minimizing distractions while driving.
“Mopar is a brand that cares about and supports all drivers, especially the youngest. Distracted driving is a pressing issue for us parents, and it is an important component of our Mopar Road Ready teen drivers’ initiative,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar. “This program is especially important because it offers teenage drivers the chance to safely gain experience and learn valuable defensive driving skills in a controlled environment.”
The program is making its way to Detroit now after having already featured in California and Florida. To sign up, parents and teens need to head over to the Mopar Road Ready website and register.
