    That's as far as I got. I'll think of a rhyme eventually and get back to you.
    If you accept the fact that a car (thing) is different than a trucker (person) I can save you a couple of syllables.

    in a car or truck
    three feet please
    you ...

    This one doesn't rhyme but I still like it. It was painted on a retaining wall on a hairpin bend on a road leading up to Darjeeling in India

    Better to be 15 minutes late in this world
    Than 15 minutes early in the next

    How about:
    To peeps in the crosswalk
    You should yield
    Because these peeps
    Don't come with a force field

    Bonus points for visuals

    Just thought of a shorter version of this:

    Peeps in crosswalk
    Drivers should yield
    Because these peeps
    Have no force field

    Friday afternoon in the office... time for some limericks:


    If you can't seem to drive on this block,
    Without using your phone for a talk,
    Then you're putting a stranger
    In very grave danger
    You could hit someone out for a walk.

    If you're always in such a mad dash,
    You could be the cause of a crash
    If your foot's full of lead
    Then a bike or a ped
    becomes blood stained all over your dash.

    A little girl wonders, "where's my dad?"
    When she learns, she will break down and cry, sad,
    Because dad's bike was hit
    By an arrogant twit
    Who thought he could drive with his iPad.


    Here's more of a Burma shave meter:

    Please hang up your phone
    and don't send that text.
    Have any idea
    what's coming up next?
    Pedestrian crossing
    Is right up ahead
    If you are distracted
    Someone will be dead


    Definitely leaning toward the morbid here. I suppose it's tough to be light-hearted while conveying the proper message though...

    Morbid plays well if people are smiling and laughing when they deliver it.

    Thanks Scoot! You are awesome.

    Drop that phone
    Eyes ahead
    Can't get home
    If you're dead

    The short ones are better- quicker to create, quicker to read (remember we're competing with I phones, GPS, visual distractions, and short attention spans), and are halfway to Haiku.
