Maybe not quite what you’d expect from Ford, but after discovering that young people are twice as likely to die on the road as the average person, Ford has created this video debuting their new Grown-Up range as an advert for safer driving* (its actually just an advert for Ford Driving Skills For Life). Figures show that young people are more likely to drive safer with an older relative in the car, compared to driving with their friends.
Their survey found that out of 6,500 young Europeans, 43% have texted at the wheel. They also found that 36% have taken calls while driving, 11% have watched videos while driving and 13% have driven after drinking. The survey also found that 26% had had an accident at the wheel, and 20% have been in a car stopped by the police.
