    Some are unlucky enough to be both careful and roadkill.

    I agree with Calvin. Short, punchy, and says everything that needs to be said.

    Reminds me of the cartoon “Senor Droopy”, where the wolf carefully looks both ways along an empty road way—only to be flattened by a speeding automobile just as he steps off the curb!!

    I remember we made anti-smoking/anti-drug posters in about 4th grade. I came up with the slogan “Smoking is Choking”. (Hey, I was nine.) One boy drew a coffin and wrote: “Best Tip Yet: Start (If You Want to End Up in Me).” He basically copied from anti-smoking bookmarks they gave out that said, “Best Tip Yet: Don’t Start”. The teacher took this project super-seriously (or so it seemed) but the posters were just hung up in the school hall for a few days and then came down.

    As usual, Calvin will use his slogan to the most effect.

    Or as the license plate frame on my car states: “Don’t Be Road Kill, Buckle Up.”

    If you have enough cadmium in your red (blood), that may solve ALL your problems…

    Very good slogan and definitely in tune with current slang.

    I like Calvin’s idea better than his mom’s. There’s no way anybody is going to forget it.

    I think I won 2nd place in an 8th grade safety poster contest. My drawing included a guy being sucked into a industrial wood planer by his necktie. I forget the slogan but it got my picture in the paper next to the dumb girl who took 1st.

    I like it. Direct and to the point. Better than anything I could come up with on my own. Let’s see the drawing.

    Make sure that that’s the right shade of red, Calvin.

    You can always substitute alizarin crimson with just a touch of indian yellow. (thanks to Bob Ross, I know these things)

    I like both Mom’s and Calvin’s. They could use them for different target audiences (Mom’s for the little kids, Calvin’s for the older ones).

    The mom’s slogan idea could win Calvin first prize. As for Calvin’s, ehhh, not so much. But it DOES get the point across! I also remember in an old “Arthur” episode when Arthur accidentally stumbles into the street, D.W. tells Arthur to be more careful, asking “You wanna end up a pile of roadkill?”

    LOL… Calvin has some considerable kinks. Even Hobbes has a time slowing him down lately.
