Curbside Haiku Safety Signs Posted in NYC

The New York City Department of Transportation has posted 216 “Curbside Haiku” signs around New York City.

Here’s more from The Gothamist: “[Each haiku expresses] a different safety message by focusing on one transportation mode. For example, our favorite one spreads this message: ‘Cyclist writes screenplay / Plot features bike lane drama / How pedestrian.’”

Follow this link to see all the locations where the signs can be found. Poet John Morse wrote the haikus, creating 12 different poems for the signs. The project was funded by Driving-While-Intoxicated (DWI) fines.
