Campaign Materials

Beginning in October 2015, North Texans started to see and hear advertising and communications for the Look Out Texans campaign. This includes social media; newsletters; static and digital billboards around the region; radio ads on KLIF, KSCS, KERA/KXT and KZZA; online ads with the Star-Telegram and Dallas Morning News; print ads in Mercado Bilingüe, Al Día and La Estrella; bus benches and bus ads in Fort Worth; and bus ads and posters in Dallas.

 

Dallas and Fort Worth are two of the 35 Pedestrian-Bicycle Focus Cities designated by the Federal Highway Administration. The U.S. cities are selected based on the high rates of pedestrian and bicycle crash fatalities. Unfortunately, both the number of bicycle and pedestrian crashes with vehicles and resulting fatalities increased between 2010 and 2014, making a regional safety campaign that reaches a broad audience driving, bicycling and walking in North Texas important.
