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.
