    NYC Bike Safety Posters

    Here are the new New York City bike safety posters.
    Please download, print, and maybe post them somewhere:

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/pdf/poster2.pdf

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/pdf/poster1.pdf

    They are pdf, but they are only one page each.

    The home page:
    http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/html/home/home.shtml

    I think the photographer did a great job of setting up the shoot.]

    Those are pretty cool.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Nifty work. I saved them. I think I'll print a few and keep them on me to give to the next person who almost takes me out.

    in poster 1 that red car is turning onto a one-way street.

    strikes me as not necessarily about 'bike safety' as about 'not recklessly threatening anyone and everyone in your path'.

    In poster one, the red car is coming OUT of a one way street. Look closely at which way the one-way arrow is pointing.

    i actually didn't even look at the one-way sign. i was observing that all the traffic and parked cars on the road the car is turning onto is going one way...

    Oh, S _ _ _, you're right.

    Most streets in NYC are one way. And there are cars parked on the left, so this one is one-way, too.

    Maybe I'm a bit slow, but I didn't immediately understand who the campaign is addressing, the motorists or the cyclists.
