It’s called a sidewalk not a sideride.
It’s road safety. Not rocket science.

Street-visible placements, including bus shelters (posters and wraps), bus window clings, bus tails, transit car interior doors, transit car cards, and transit car “Michaelangelos” (ceiling clings), are intended as an alternative to aggressive ticketing to reduce Philadelphia pedestrian and cyclist fatalities, now averaging one every 13 days.

That said, I also kinda agree with @kleenex
