Good luck, Ford!

From a Ford Press Release:

Ford Motor Company today launched its global Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) driver education program in China, together with its joint venture, Changan Ford Mazda Automobile Co., Ltd. and Jiangling Motors Co., Ltd.

Driving Skills for Life training sessions will be conducted through the
end of August at 62 full-service Ford dealerships in 22 Chinese cities,
including Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Nanjing. DSFL is offered free to program trainees, and Ford plans to have more than 3,000 drivers participate in the training this year.

The DSFL training has been customized for China to reflect the local
driving environment and road conditions, and will mix classroom learning and practical training to help increase awareness of safe driving techniques and teach skills that can help drivers improve fuel efficiency.

Which reminds me, I really should write an article about learning to drive in China.
