ARE YOUR STUDENTS READY FOR WINTER DRIVING?
HELP STUDENTS LOSE THE JUNK AND STOCK UP ON WINTER SAFETY ITEMS WITH OUR NOVEMBER "TRUNK JUNK" CAMPAIGN!
Kits available for your school to hold a winter readiness event any time between November 13-22
Crossroads Teen Driving is again partnering with State Farm for the “Trunk Junk” campaign. Help student drivers clean out their trunks and back seats, replace and check safety equipment and review winter driving tips.  Here's how your school can get involved:
SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE! We will send you all you need to organize an easy, high-impact event.
Invite students to open their trunks and rid them of "junk." Talk about replacing all of that junk with important winter safety supplies they would need in an emergency. Hold a contest for most junk, weirdest junk or just raffle the safety items to all participants. It's an easy-to-implement, fun event that teaches an important lesson about safety.

Participating high schools will receive a kit of materials. There are 15 full kits available that contain posters, fliers and table tents to promote the event, winter driving safety handouts, mini flashlights, ice scrapers, fleece blankets, tire gauges, gift cards, jumper cables and first-aid kits. There are also 10 mini kits available to schools that may not be able to commit to holding an event but still want to hand out supplies and safety tip sheets to students. Quantities are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis; while supplies last. 
WINTER DRIVING SAFETY TIPS FOR YOUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY:
Winter driving tips  
When the snow falls, driving becomes an entirely different experience. Checking road conditions and driving slowly are just a few of the tips. Download winter driving tips here
Myth or Fact?
Pouring boiling water over your windshield and using a hair dryer to thaw your locks are quick ways to get going in the morning. These are dangerous myths.
Winterize your vehicle Doing a safety check on your vehicle this time of year is extremely important. For many new drivers, this is their first winter on the roads, so it's extra important their vehicles are road ready both inside and out. Get the road ready checklist here.
Deer danger
Deer-vehicle collisions are a serious and persistent problem in Wisconsin. Last year, law enforcement agencies reported more than 20,000 of these crashes. Do students know what to do when a deer crosses their path? Download information about deer safety .
GRADUATED DRIVER LICENSING: REDUCING THE RISK
Wisconsin's Graduated Driver Licensing Law reduces the risk by making sure teens gradually build driving experience with supervision before getting their licenses and restricting driving after they are licensed. Crossroads Teen Driving offers a series of free resources that include wallet cards and fact sheets (English and Spanish) to help educate parents and teens about the law. We also have 12x18" posters for classrooms. Order these free classroom resources here.
