Bike Safe 3' To Pass Shirt

These are the tees in different prototypes. THESE ARE NOT FINAL DESIGNS! Feedback very much appreciated! We'll probably add a yellow shirt and women's fitted shirts as well. This is as big as they print as CafePress. Shirts are sold at cost! I plan on making jerseys if interest is expressed.

I will shop around for sponsors in order to defray the outrageous costs. Even at heavy volume discounts, custom jerseys cost upwards of $60. I imagine an effective price point for these jerseys would be under $30. If you know of any sponsors -- especially agencies sponsoring 3' bills in your state -- please send me their info.

Thirty years ago, I used to see folks riding with a three foot long orange plastic rod that protruded from their bikes to their left. Those rods had a little orange flag on the end. The whole rod/flag deal probably weighed less than four ounces or so. Yet, for some reason, motorists were greatly afraid of getting near those rods. They would swing their vehicles six feet to the left to make sure those rods were far from their vehicle. I was always amazed by drivers over-reaction to those little rods.

In Houston, a "three foot" tee-shirt would simply encourage the guys in pickups trucks to go around the block for a second attempt, if they failed to hit you with their passenger door mirror on their first attempt.

Bigger words. Even more simple image. I don't want drivers getting even closer to read it!
Good ideas, though
