“Our state’s drivers support displaying courtesy, using their turn signals, and making safer decisions behind the wheel. We all want everyone to get safely home.”
It’s the sixth year ADOT has conducted the contest.
More than 6,000 votes were cast last year for the 12 finalists, with the two chosen being “miss your exit? It’s okay we made more ahead” and “life is a highway I wanna ride it with a seatbelt on.”
ADOT uses messages that relate to various topics, such as pop culture and current events, to promote safe driving.
We want to hear from you.
