Haiku traffic signs

New traffic warning signs are popping up around New York City and they are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Created by artist John Morse for the New York City Department of Transportation, these signs are colorful, bold, and very clever with haiku under the image.

One sign shows a figure walking with dice as the head and a haiku message stating:

Too averse to risk
To chance the lottery, yet
Steps into traffic

They are very powerful. To see these images go to this NPR report.
