Port Washington Police asked the community to put out its best ideas for a driver safety slogan, and residents responded.
The initiative is part of a new campaign in which police, Port Washington schools and community groups are partnering to make our streets safer. The hope is that the campaign will put an end to texting while driving, speeding, illegal U-turns, disregard for stop signs and pedestrians in crosswalks, and more.
Port Washington Police Commissioner Dave Franklin is now looking for community members to vote for their favorite slogan, by e-mailing him at email@example.com.
The finalists are:
- TEXT...YOU'RE NEXT! ( with skull and crossbones interspersed in the letters)
- Courtesy Counts-Keep Port Polite
- Safe Drivers Make Good Neighbors
- Be S.M.A.R.T. Safety Matters. Act Responsibly.Tell Your Friends! SafeDrivers Make Good Neighbors!
- S.M.A.R.T. ( see below )
- S- Safety First – We love our children Drive Safely
- M- Mentally Alert – Keep your mind on the Road – distractions will cause accidents –
- Do Not Text – No hand held cells
- A Anticipate- or Alert Anticipate- drive defensively
- R- Role Model – To your kids and to others – safety is contagious. Set the right example.
- T- Talk about safety
