A catchy public awareness campaign is reminding Tacoma motorists to share the road with bicyclists, pedestrians, and each other. The Drive Nice, Tacoma campaign is a joint effort by the City of Tacoma and Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department and is funded through a grant from Washington State Department of Health.
The campaign features yellow and black signs that caution motorists with messages like "Pedestrians are not hood ornaments." In addition to the signs, which are popping up around town, postcards and bumper stickers with safety tips will soon be available. A News Tribune article includes images of three campaign signs.
