Texas Department Of Transportation invites community members to submit their best clever saying for a chance to have your message encouraging safer driving.displayed above Texas highways on digital message boards.

 TxDOT launched the Digital Highway Sign Contest to find the best and most creative safe-driving message that is related to impaired driving (drunk or drugged driving,) distracted driving (texting while driving,) not wearing seatbelts or speeding.

Since the majority of crashes are preventable, TxDOT uses these creative messages, which often are related to current events and pop culture, as part of an effort to encourage drivers to improve their behavior behind the wheel.

The contest is open through Dec. 8, and there is no limit to the number of entries a contestant can submitted at The top 10 entries will be posted on social media and voted on by the public. A “like” or “share” equals one point. The top three winners will see their message in bright lights over highways across the state.
