Safety Citizens Program

Become a Safety Citizen by partnering with PennDOT in encouraging others to practice safe behaviors on the road. This virtual community outreach program invites Pennsylvanians to express their creativity while responding to traffic safety questions posed bi-monthly. Every other month, we'll request a response using a different medium such as video, poem, drawing and more. Selected responses will be shared on PennDOT's social media platforms.

We Want to Hear From You

Which highway safety law is most important to you and why?

This month participants are asked to pick a highway safety law and explain how it saves lives through the creation a video or other original artwork, like a drawing or poem.

Submissions Due January 29, 2021
