Everyone who uses the roads has a role to play in safety. This includes large trucks and buses, cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces the 2019 Road Safety Art Contest, an annual coloring contest that encourages children in kindergarten through sixth grade (ages 5-12) use their creativity and talent to raise awareness of how to stay safe on the roads.

The winning artwork will best show that everyone who uses the roads has a role to play in safety. This includes big trucks and buses, cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.
