Beyond “Watch the Road:” Safety Messages Appearing on Buses

Last summer we had “Caution Pass with Care” and “Give Me 3,” this summer we have bus companies sponsoring messages about safe travel on P.S.A.’s attached to the bus.  Here on the Westside, both the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus and UCLA Transit buses are driving around town with messages urging drivers to “share the road.”  That’s a big step up from just watching it.

This being Friday, I thought we would run a positive poll to end the week.  You tell me, which of these two bus P.S.A.’s is the better one (they’re both good.)
