A good society is safe for children

I think this image is meant sarcastically, but I find that I 100% support all of the slogans:

Traffic safety is an important issue. In the USA, most homes open directly onto a street, or they have a yard, which touches upon a street. This is insane. There should be 100 meters between any house and any car. We should not be telling children “Don’t play in traffic”, we should, instead, redirect traffic so it never comes close to any house or school.

Likewise, we should tell people not endanger children.

I recall in 2001 I walked into Alderman Library at UVA and someone on staff had put up a sign that read “Please watch your personal belongings. There have been several thefts recently.” but one of the students had taken a marker and written over it “STOP STEALING!” Which is the perfect sign to put up. Talk directly to those who are doing wrong, and tell them to stop.
