CLARKSTON – Look Out Asotin County’s traffic safety campaign is hosting a pedestrian safety art contest. Students grades K-12 are invited to use their creativity to raise awareness about how to stay safe on the road when you’re driving, biking, rolling, or walking in our community.
Creative submissions may be hand-drawn art, digital art, or craft. Submit artwork depicting how all road users can stay safe abiding by traffic safety laws. The contest is open through July 5. Winners in four different categories will be announced on the Look Out Asotin County website and social media, along with a prize.
Look Out Asotin County is a grant funded by the Washington State Traffic Commission. The goal of the Look Out Asotin County educational campaign is to increase community awareness of the need for drivers to yield for walkers and rollers to allow their safe passage on the Bridge and Diagonal Street corridors. These corridors have daily traffic counts between 10,000 and 18,000 vehicles daily with 6 crosswalks in less than one-third of a mile. The majority of accidents that involve pedestrians are a result of inattentive driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and failing to yield.
