Driver safety - on and off the track

Race car drivers know the importance of good driving decisions - and the consequences of bad ones - better than anyone. Our involvement with driver safety programs and professional motorsports connect our customers with the knowledge and experience of professional drivers - helping to save lives.

Westfield's commitment to teen driver safety programs led to opportunities to promote safe driving choices by getting involved with professional motorsports.

Teen Driver Safety

With half of all new drivers involved in a crash before they turn 20, we need better ways to prepare and protect teen drivers. Westfield works to help improve public awareness of the importance of teen driver safety and supports programs that educate and inform young drivers and their parents.

Driving Skills for Life

Driving Skills for Life Through Driving Skills for Life, a driver safety initiative from the Ford Motor Company Fund and the Governors' Highway Safety Association, Westfield is involved to help educate young drivers on the importance of good choices.

Westfield Insurance joined forces with these organizations two years ago to reach out to thousands of teens through educational programming, Driving Skills for Life curriculum, and Drive and Ride training events.

DrivingSkillsforLife.com - This interactive web site helps educate new drivers through online training and games. Teens can master hazard recognition, vehicle handling, speed management and space management skills...and earn points toward possible prizes! Parents can get smart advice to give to their children...it could save lives.

Road Safe Teens

The Road Safe Teens program (Ohio) will send 200 newly licensed drivers to the Mid-Ohio School's Teen Defensive Driving Program this August. Working through our independent agents, the program will be available to Ohio customers for teens who may not be able to afford this training on their own.

Road Safe Teens is another way we can give back to our community and customers and help improve the driving skills of even more teen drivers.
