Frequently Asked Questions​​

This Georgia Department of Transportation program is funded through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The purpose of this core Federal-aid program is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads, including non-State-owned roads and roads on tribal lands.

The Georgia DOT created this website and all the resources for parents and educators across Georgia. All materials are available free of charge and are designed to teach students lessons around car and road safety. This includes bus and bike safety, pedestrian safety, distracted driving, and more.

Absolutely. We encourage you to share these public safety materials with educators, parents, and others.

Within our Georgia Virtual Field Trip, you’ll find many games for students to play as they travel around Georgia. You’ll also find some printable games and activities in the My Road to Safety book downloadable PDF, which you can get here on the website. Plus, our virtual driving game is coming soon!

We Are Teachers represents a large community of educators all over the country, including many teachers in Georgia. The Georgia DOT partnered with them to create materials and resources for this program.

Yes. We kept the GaDOE standards in mind every step of the way. Plus, we worked with educators across Georgia to create materials teachers will actually use. You can see the alignments on the website.

During this first year, we focused our mailings to teachers in grades 3-5 and to principals in middle and high school. If you fall outside of this but would like to request a kit, you can email us. Please note that we might not be able to send one out right away, based on supply and timing. But we’ll keep your information for future printings and mailings. And remember—all the resources in the classroom kits are available right here on this site as downloadable documents. Please download and print as many as you’d like!

If you received books for your classroom but didn’t quite get enough, please know that you can download a PDF copy right here. This will be the easiest and quickest way to get you additional books.

We’d love to see your students’ artwork and ideas for making our roads safer. You can send those to us by completing our feeback form.
