Haiku safety warning

17 syllables of safety

NYC street signs are sporting a new look with bold, eye-catching graphics and safety messages written in Haiku. Just 17 thought-provoking (and occasionally snarky) syllables to encourage distracted gotta-be-there-right-now New York drivers and pedestrians to stop, look, listen and maybe even smile. Our favorite shows a woman’s silhouette walking from light to dark and the caption: “She walks in beauty/like the night./Maybe that’s why/drivers can’t see her.” Only in New York.
