As kids all over Wisconsin get ready for a new school year, it's a great time to review transportation safety rules. The DOT provides activities, lesson plans, and safety quizzes that will get kids engaged in transportation safety. Whether you're a driver, riding a bike, walking or riding the bus to get to school, let's all stay safe!
