Press Release: Wilmington Flower Market, Inc. funds SmartSkills hands on driving skills class scholarships promoting teen driving safety

The SmartDrive Foundation owns a well-deserved reputation for effectively improving teen driver safety in Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Since it’s inception in 2004 in response to a devastating rash of 6 teen fatalities in a single month in Delaware, SmartDrive has maintained its promise to offer the program to all students in the tri-state area free of charge, ensuring that the opportunity to become a safer driver was available to all.

In 2009-2010, over 20,000 students and their parents were personally introduced to SmartDrive. Over 4,000 students participated in the basic program that picks up where basic Driver Education leaves off, teaching decision making skills, forethought and a mature, responsible approach to driving via an interactive online program divided into themed modules. Students watch videos, play games, and learn of real “ripped from the headlines” accounts of driving mishaps, from minor infractions to fatal crashes and their devastating aftermath. Through these means, students are taught how to become more mature in their driving judgment, and they learn that responsibility and control of their driving environment begins and ends with them. Thousands more are participating in SmartDriveU and SmartDrivePlus. The program uses positive reinforcement and incentives in a preventive environment that impacts driving behavior on the front end.

In the upcoming academic year, we will take an important new step in our offerings by unveiling SmartDrive/SmartSkills. With help from our founding partner and sponsor, the Delaware Department of Insurance, SmartSkills adds the “hands on” application of safe driving skills in an actual “on the road” program for our participants this fall. Each SmartSkills program will be offered for a full day at our partner schools and will address such driving topics as driver awareness (including a hands on demonstration of the dangers of distracted driving), drowsy driving and DUI. Other topics include vehicle care and maintenance, bad weather driving and other challenges.

The cost is $65 for the first student and $25 for the second in a family.
