    What a cool theme! How about having an area on the rug for storytime that looks like a race track...or a rug leading into the room with road stripes perhaps. You could have a "Traffic Light" behavior chart (vertical Black rectangle with red, yellow, and green circles glued on.)Make cars that have each students'name and hot glue onto a clothespin...the goal is to stay on the green light, of course. How about a reading center that's called "The Racing Pit" and have pillows shaped like cars or decorated with cars somehow. You could also have helpers "flags" to designate different jobs. A variety of safety signs could hang about the room...and your rules could be titled "Our Speed Limits". Oh, and don't forget the "Starting Line" as you come into the room (a checkered flag hanging from the top of the door could be fun). Party supply stores might have a lot of stuff that could help, too. Good luck!
