Love your logo? Put is on display!
A lot of work goes into developing a company logo. It is a key aspect of a company’s brand identity and should distinguish a brand from its competitors.
A logo takes thought and creativity, and many elements must be considered to create a good one. The design process should strive to make the logo immediately recognizable, inspiring trust, loyalty and an implied superiority. A good one is unique, graphic and simple in form, conveying the brand’s image message.
Red and blue are the dominate colors used and most companies use no more than two colors for their logo. Simplicity makes a logo recognizable, memorable and easy for consumers to understand. An Udemy survey found consumers’ favorite to be:
An effective logo should work across a variety of media and applications (i.e. Adopt-A-Highway signs).
We know you put thought, time and money into your company logo, so we suggest you put it on display for thousands to see with Sponsor-A-Highway!
We kinda dig ours too!
Three Days & Counting….Still feeling unsure about your Super Bowl IQ? Here is your guide for some fun facts about the big day!
The Super Bowl got its name because one of the conditions of the merger between the NFL and the AFL in 1966 was that the winner of each league’s championship game would meet in one game to determine the “world champion of football”. One of the owner’s used the Super Bowl during negotiations and the name stuck – Super Bowl madness was born!
The 1st Super Bowl was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season with the Green Bay Packers winning.
Super Bowl 50 is being referred to as the “Golden Super Bowl” for three reasons:
1. The game is being played in Levi Stadium in San Francisco, California, the Golden State
2. Levi Stadium is the home to the San Francisco 49ers, a team named after the miners of the California Gold Rush.
3. It is the 50th Super Bowl to be played – 50th anniversary is traditionally the “golden anniversary”.
Levi Stadium covers 1.85 million square feet, seats approximately 68,500 and features 165 luxury suites and 8,500 club seats. For special events like the Super Bowl, they are expanding its capacity to reach 75,000 fans.
Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest day of food consumption in the US, second only to Thanksgiving Day.
Americans drink 325 million gallons of beer during the Big Game
70 million pounds of avocados get mashed into guacamole (equaling one avocado per US household)
40 and 50 million pounds of chips are eaten
According to the American Chicken Council, Americans eat about 1.25 billion chicken wings during the day. That’s enough to put 572 wings on every seat in all 32 NFL stadiums, according to the organization
Enjoy your Super Bowl celebrations, but please remember to plan for a safe ride home!

Auto insurance Myths – how much do you really know about car insurance? Don’t worry Adopt-A-Highway is here to help & set the record straight on a few auto insurance myths.
Fiction: Red cars cost more to insure.
FACT: Red, purple, blue, black – color is NOT a factor used to calculate car insurance rates. Things used to calculate insurance rates include the year, make, model, body type, engine size and age of your car, as well as driving record of those being insured.
Fiction: My car insurance rates should be similar to my neighbor’s, sister’s, aunt’s or uncle’s rates.
FACT: Car insurance rates are determined individually based on age, driving record and type of vehicle. Each person’s situation is different, so insurance rates will definitely vary.
Fiction: “No-fault insurance means it’s not my fault!”
FACT: No-fault insurance typically (state rules vary) requires your auto insurance company to pay medical expenses & lost wages for injuries due to a car accident, regardless of who is at fault. If you caused the accident, you are not off the hook. The insurance companies will decide who is to blame, and that driver would be liable for repairs and damages.
Fiction: Small cars are the cheapest to insure.
FACT: Small cars do not have the cheapest rates because they are often chosen by younger, inexperienced drivers who submit more claims. Also, injury claims are higher from small cars, which lack the weight and protection offered by larger vehicles. Small and mid-size SUVs and minivans are the cheapest to insure.
Fiction: Thieves prefer to steal new cars.
FACT: Older cars are more valued among thieves because the demand used parts in high. If you have an older car and you want to cover car theft, you should purchase comprehensive auto coverage.

Looking for affordable marketing in the New Year?
If so, ring in 2016 by adding Adopt-A-Highway to your marketing plan. Average daily traffic counts on busy interstates have soared, making them one of the best places to advertise.

During this season of giving, Adopt-A-Highway is happy to support Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project. We will be donating 50 tree for each new sign sponsorship!
Get Your Car Serviced NOW
We all want to put it off as long as possible, but have needed service completed prior to the 1st snow. Make sure to ask the mechanic to check fluids (coolant, oil, windshield wiper fluid) and battery, and use proper products for the weather in your area.
Check the Tires
Winter driving can be treacherous on wet, ice and snow covered roads. To be safe, make sure your tires have peak traction by checking tread (2/32 of an inch on ALL tires). Also, check tire pressure, which can decrease significantly in cold weather. Properly inflated tires provide optimal performance. Don’t forget to check your spare tire as well, nothing worse than a flat spare!
Be sure to check that your headlights, brake lights, turn signals, emergency flashers are all working properly. See and be seen – Turn on lights for greater visibility!
Wash & Wax
Winter is harsh on our car’s exteriors, a thorough washing and waxing will protect your car’s paint from corrosion caused by moisture and salt on the roads.
Check to make sure both front and back blades are working well. Switch to winter wiper blades to increase visibility if you get lots of ice and snow. Completely fill the wiper fluid reservoir before the 1st snow. Use winter wiper fluid with de-icer for best results.
During the winter months moisture can build up in your gas tank, causing corrosion. Keep your gas tank at least half full to absorb the moisture. This is also a good practice since winter driving may have unexpected delays and getting to a gas station may not be easy.
Always plug in when not in use to minimize drain on the battery. Also, be aware that cold weather requires the battery to work harder, so driving distance may decrease significantly.
Most important of all SLOW DOWN! The key to getting anywhere is to get there safely!
As always, Adopt-A-Highway requests you don’t litter – we don’t need any more hazard on the roadways this winter. Be Safe!
Happy Thanksgiving from the Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, Inc. We wish you and yours all the BEST over this holiday season!
