OMG! Cautionary Sidewalk Stencils Appear in Downtown Burlington

Stop-texting

My smartphone was safely stowed in my pocket this morning as I walked in to work, which is probably why I noticed these new stencils on the sidewalk in downtown Burlington. Naturally, I took my phone out after I saw them and snapped some photos.

The paint looked pretty fresh. Anyone know who put them there or why? I took these at the intersection of Main Street and South Winooski Avenue, Main and Pine streets., and Main and South Champlain streets.

Update: Mystery solved! Not surprisingly, the people-powered transportation advocates at Local Motion are responsible for these sidewalk safety messages. Thanks to alert reader Liam Griffin for the tip on our Facebook page.
