In a joint effort between the Municipal Planning Institute, the Municipal Police of Mérida and Mexican multinational company CEMEX, the first Artistic Pedestrian Crossing of the municipality of Mérida was painted at the intersection of Calle 57 and Calle 50, Colonia Centro.
The realization of this type of activity is a clear sign that the union of efforts between civil society and government leads to the achievement of positive actions for social benefit.
The painting of this first Artistic Pedestrian Crossing was supervised by the director of the Municipal Police of Mérida, Commander Mario Arturo Romero Escalante, who by the way, also collaborated in the painting works.
Through this work of art in the form of pencils, the objective is to awaken the people’s awareness on the subject of road safety, in particular, specifically when it comes to school zone pedestrian crossings.
To make the place of the crossing more evident, the design of the crossing has an artistic element, always maintaining the criteria and standards of road signs.
This initiative is aimed at supporting safe mobility actions, aligning with the basic regulations of sustainable urban mobility. This type of actions reinforce the relationship between private initiative, civil society and City Council to achieve the objectives of common interest for the Merida society.
