Welcome to Kelli’s C.R.U.S.A.D.E

Kelli’s C.R.U.S.A.D.E. was created after the tragic death of Kelli Baker on October 19, 2011. Kelli’s parents, Rick and Sharon Baker, founded Kelli’s C.R.U.S.A.D.E. in 2012. It is their passion to keep other teen drivers safe by crusading for safer roads, promoting safety awareness, and enhancing driver education.

The C.R.U.S.A.D.E

CONTINUING ROAD UPGRADES: You can report any unsafe road condition. This can include: Roads that need lines on them.  Roads that have an edge drop of more than 3 inches. Roads falling apart. Roads that do not have signs for a curve or RR Tracks. Roads that have trees or brush blocking your view. Whatever YOU feel is needed to keep you and your family safe on that road.  Kelli’s C.R.U.S.A.D.E. has made about 20 improvements over the past 6 years. Give us a call or send an email. We will contact the appropriate road department.

SAFETY AWARENESS: We promote safe driving. Obey the laws. Wear your seatbelt. Drive with your lights on when it is raining. Do not text and drive. Stay off your cell phone. Do not apply make-up or read the paper while driving. Drive with two hands on the wheel. Drive the speed limit. Do not drive impaired. Make good decisions. Drive Smart. Drive Safe.

DRIVERS EDUCATION: We enhance driver’s education through our Winter Driving Skills Scholarship Program at Drive Team. We believe this program teaches critical techniques not offered in State Minimum Driving Schools
