What I think is interesting about this campaign is that pedestrians and cyclists are asked to obey the law, but motorists aren't. Safe motorist behaviors listed include "stopping for, or yielding to pedestrians in the crosswalk" -- but DC law is specific that a stop is required, yielding is not sufficient. In fact, last year's DDOT PR campaign was that the law required stopping at crosswalks -- I guess that campaign fizzled, if the guys running this year's campaign don't remember it.

It would have been nice for them to note that bicycles are considered pedestrians when they're using crosswalks and cars have to stop for them as well.
