WalkBikeMarin kicks off walking and biking safety campaign

Posted: 2010-05-06

Have you seen the WalkBikeMarin ads in the Marin IJ, Pacific Sun, or on Golden Gate Transit buses ? WalkBikeMarin is currently conducting a two-month media campaign around safety issues specific to bicycling and walking - as well as driving around pedestrians and bicyclists. This safety campaign includes more than 20 print advertisements in local newspapers and community newsletters, 40 bus back ads, posters and stickers posted at 20 local businesses and agencies, and hundreds of free items - stickers, t-shirts, buttons, rulers - being given away at local community events.

The campaign features five safety messages:
  • Marin Shares the Road
  • Streets are for Everybody
  • What's the Rush? Stop for Pedestrians
  • Put a Lid on It! Wear a Helmet
  • Lights on! Be Safe, Be Seen

In May, WalkBikeMarin will be taking part in Bike to Work Day; plus, you can come see us at the Downtown San Rafael Farmers Market on May 27 and the Caledonia Street Fair in Sausalito on May 30.
