NYC DOT Gets Creative to Promote Road Safety

Posted by Infra on Friday, December 2nd, 2011

The New York City Department of Transportation’s campaign, “Curbside Haiku,” combines safety education and public art. Twelve ‘signs,’ featuring haiku and artwork by John Morse, are posted in strategic points throughout the five boroughs.

Many adorn heavy-traffic intersections where accidents are frequent, and are meant to increase safety awareness among pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.  According to NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, “These signs complement our engineering and education efforts to create a steady rhythm for safer streets in all five boroughs.”
