Today's Times-Union has a filler ad on page 7A that gives safety rules
for bike riding.

Under a logo of the yellow diamond-shaped "Share the Road" sign, there
is a list:

<bold>When Riding Always:</bold>
-Go With the Traffic Flow. Ride on the right in the same direction as
other vehicles
-Obey All Traffic Laws. A bicycle is a vehicle and you are a driver
-Yield to Traffic When Appropriate
-Be Predictable
-Stay Alert at All Times
-Look Before Turning
-Watch for Parked Cars

<centered signature>

A Message From The
Times [logo] Union

</centered signature>

[I substituted -s for the bullets]

Note the total lack of FOB's essential and only possible safety rule:
"Wear a symbolic hat shaped somewhat like a helmet."

Nice!

I keep hoping for PSA messages directed at motorists, too.

General motoring safety, or directions on how to interact with cyclists?

Trying to check, I found one on pedestrians, with a general remark
addressed to drivers, follwed by a request that both be "more
observant, cautious, and safe":

A little farther back I came across a reminder that you aren't
supposed to accelerate around a stopped schoolbus and mow down three
innocent little children:

and the schoolbus ad ran again the day before yesterday, but nothing
on driving safely; I must have mis-remembered.
