The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) wanted to have some fun by having members of the community come up with new traffic signs. It seems that the old “click it or ticket” is way outdated. The rules were simple “Messages couldn’t exceed 63 characters, including spaces, and no profanity was allowed.” Hundreds of people submitted their ideas and here is a list of winners that were divided into 5 categories.
First place: If you miss your exit it’s okay, we made more up ahead.
Second place: Better late than never.
Third place (tie): Drive like your momma is watchin’.
Third place (tie): You are allowed to use turn signals. We checked.
Third place (tie): Drive safely or we call your mother.
First place (tie): You look great but the selfie can wait.
First place (tie): Looking at the road is a great way to stay on it.
Second place: No one wants to see traffic on Snapchat, Brenda.
Third place: Pop quiz, what is the speed limit on this road?
First place: Driving half lit is not very bright.
Second place: Don’t spend the new year in jail. Party responsibly.
Third place (tie): Don’t be a turkey and drive basted.
Third place (tie): The party should be lit, not you. Bring in the new year safe.
First place (tie): This is a sign you should buckle up.
First place (tie): If you don’t wear a seat belt, please be an organ donor.
