Friday StreetPoll: Pick the Best Roadside P.S.A.

If you’re a fan on road signage as traffic calming, then 2011 is shaping up to be quite a year for you!  First the Department of D.I.Y. rolled out some signage attached to power boxes around the city asking drivers to “Please pass with care.”  Later in the summer, the collaborative efforts of the Bike Coalition, Midnight Ridazz, Mayor’s Office and LAPD came the “Give Me 3” Poster Campaign.  In the Fall, just in time for Back to School, the LADOT’s Watch the Road Campaign placed advertisement’s on billboard that encourage people to both “Watch the Road” and “Be safe.  Be healthy.  Walk or Bike to School.”

So with all this time and money being spent writing messages to motorists, this week’s poll asks you; which was the “best” campaign.  That we’re using a subjective word such as “best”is intentional.  Go with your gut.

Streetsies 2010: It Was the Best of Times

|
If someone had told me a year ago that we would be celebrating a Bike Plan that the cycling community loved, that Metro would have already received some 30/10 money from the federal government and that the LAPD was being praised for its bike-friendly efforts at the end of the year I wouldn’t have thought […]

Eyes on the Street: Bike Lane Closure Signage Gives Wrong Sign?

|
Streetsie winner Nathan Lucero encountered some irritating signage when bicycling north on the Main Street bike lanes near El Pueblo downtown. From his @onmybikeinla Instagram post: (lightly edited) After the bike lane on Main was closed twice, and blocked several times by multiple cars, these awful signs were at Arcadia. The left sign should read […]
