“Look, Smile, Wave!” campaign promotes bike safety
May 23, 2013
As the summer draws nearer, promoting bus and bike safety becomes more important. The new campaign, “Look, Smile, Wave!” continues for Bike Safety Month, according to a press release from King County Department of Transportation.
This safety campaign marks the second year King County Metro has teamed up with the Seattle Department of Transportation, Bicycle Alliance of Washington and Cascade Bicycle Club on transit bus ads that remind bus operators and cyclists to be on the lookout for each other.
During Bike Month and heading into summer months, there is a significant increase in the number of cyclists on our roads, according to the press release.
Metro Transit has posted five new bus and bike safety online to help show what cyclists and drivers can do to see each other and improve safety. The updated video series, hosted on King County Metro’s bike travel page, includes segments on passing, turning, loading a bike, traveling predictably and bicycle improvements around the city.
Metro and cycle advocates are hoping the videos and bus ads will help improve awareness and make this a safer summer for all who share the road.
