ODOT Taking Public Input on Highway Sign Message Ideas

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The Ohio Department of Transportation is soliciting ideas from the public on messages for digital highway signs.

Winning submissions will be part of the rotation of messages that appear on signs across the state that deal with impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving, or wearing a seat belt.

ODOT spokesman Matt Bruning says there are restrictions on length and content for submissions.

"We can only do 17 characters and three lines down," Bruning said, adding "we can't put curse words or things that wouldn't be appropriate up there."

Some submissions that have been used include "What's HO-HO-Holding you back," and "He sees you when you're speeding."

Bruning says a committee at ODOT meets twice a year to brainstorm ideas and take submissions on the highway messages.
