Stop, Look & Wave
for Safer Streets
RI Waves is a fun road safety campaign for everyone – bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists.
RI Waves encourages everyone – pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists – to wave to each other and confirm they’ve been seen at all road crossings. The message is positive, friendly and inspiring – we can all be safer on our streets when we Stop, Look & Wave at every crossing.
Would you like to become a partner and bring RI Waves to your town, school, library or business?
