US auto maker Ford Vietnam has unveiled plans to organise more programmes to improve awareness of safe driving in Viet Nam.

They include one called Driving Skills for Life.

The company said the programme has been organised for 11 years with free training given to 15,000 drivers in 15 provinces and cities.

Along with these training programmes, the company has also organsied campaigns like “K0 Coi” (No Honking) and “K0 Con” (No Alcohol) that have attracted many young people.

They have got over 100,000 viewers on social media.

“For the last 10 years Ford has made every effort to create changes in Vietnamese transportation,” Pham Van Dung, the company’s general director, said.

Through its many campaigns for students, the company wants to contribute to creating safer transportation in the country.

Last month the car maker organised a programme involving over 600 students and teachers in Ha Noi to teach them the skills required to make transportation safe. Students were taught the importance of wearing seat belts and helmets and driving in the right lane and the various dangers involved in driving.

It was held as part of the company’s Global Caring Month, during which each of its staff spend two working days to take part in community activities.

In Viet Nam, its staff have contributed 25,000 working hours to the programme and organised training programmes for children all over the country. – VNS
