PSAs Rock! Watch the Winners of TA’s “Biking Rules” Video Contest

As you may know, Transportation Alternatives put on a red carpet premiere Tuesday night for the "Biking Rules"
PSA competition at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The contest pitted
video entries against each other in two main categories: "Why Biking
Rules" and "Street Code."

people to use lights, bells, stop at red lights, ride with traffic and
generally ride safely and courteously. "Why Biking Rules" is pretty self-explanatory.

Out of some 80 total
submissions, about 40 PSAs (and a slideshow of photos) played to a sold
out theater. The shorts were truly impressive and scored a well-earned victory over George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, and Mariah Carey at the box office.

Above is one of the winning high-def entries in the Biking Rules category: "Lights Turn Heads," by Aldo Arias and Pam Tietze. You can see the rest of the winners here.
