The New York City Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Safe Streets Fund, has unveiled a new series of traffic warning signs that combine public art with a safety awareness effort for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. The signs, which include 12 designs in all, were the creation of Atlanta artist John Morse. Morse previously created a similar public art installation in Atlanta, which featured tongue-in-cheek haiku advertisements such as "Build Personal Wealth, In the Comfort of Your Home, Read to Your Children."
