​Philadelphia area students were invited to help save lives and keep pedestrians, motorists, PennDOT workers, and bicyclists safe through District 6's newly created Helping Hearts Transportation Safety campaign for Valentine's Day.

Since many PennDOT programs were put on hold because of Covid-19, District 6 wanted to find a way to reach students through a virtual platform and continue educating the public on transportation safety hazards. Students were asked to submit a drawing and create a valentine which highlighted a traffic safety theme such as, distracted driving, impaired driving, speeding, seatbelt usage, bicycle safety, pedestrian safety and school bus safety. 

District 6 students sent in inspiring artwork to help promote these important transportation safety messages. Drawings were posted on the Philadelphia Area 511PA Twitter and on the Greater Philly Area Facebook page.

It's always special to receive a valentine, but even more special to receive a valentine that cares about the traveling public's wellbeing.
