MOTU launches PSA: It’s road safety, not rocket science

The Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities (MOTU) has launched a road safety PSA campaign coined “Its Road safety. Not rocket science.” The campaign is in an effort to remind Philadelphians to walk right, ride right and drive right. 

MOTU will post graphic posters in more than 50 bus shelters, on the backs of more than 65 buses and in more than 500 buses. The PSA messages range from, “Cars have bumpers. You don’t,” to “SLOWWWW DOWWNNN,” and “It’s called a bus stop, not a bus chase.”

If you don’t ride the bus, you can catch the campaign and regular updates on MOTU’s blog and Facebook page.
