If you can remember, a while back we talked about the Mopar Road Ready Event that was going to be hosted throughout the U.S. and sponsored by the FCA US LLC Foundation. Well one of those events recently took place at the Mopar World Headquarters in Center Line, Michigan and it sold out completely! Want to know more about the session – keep reading!
Mopar and FCA teamed up about a year ago to create a program to teach teens safe and defensive driving techniques. Teens must be between the ages of 15-19 with a valid learner’s or driver’s license and must have at least 30 hours of driving experience.
In Center Line, Michigan on May 2 & 3, 400 people attended and 190 teens completed the program and are now “Road Ready”! This isn’t the first stop on the tour. FCA US LLC and Mopar have visited California and Florida where they have educated a combined 700 drivers with their program.
“We are extremely pleased by the overwhelming community participation,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO – Mopar Brand Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA. “Car accidents are the number one cause of death among teenagers, and this program provides young drivers — and parents — the chance to learn hands-on, highly valuable skills behind the wheel that can hopefully help them avoid an accident or even save their lives.”
The dedicated staff at Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM is proud of the work FCA US LLC and Mopar are doing.
