Don't Blend In

"Don't Blend In"  is a safety awareness initiative, funded by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, aimed to encourage changes in behavior that can contribute to crashes in the community - such as speeding, distraction, impairment, and failure to yield to pedestrians. This initiative also encourages and empowers pedestrians and bicyclists to wear bright-colored clothing that stands out. The activities and promotional materials feature people who live, work, go to school and play in Rainier Valley in ways that resonate and feel familiar to the Rainier Valley community.
