ODOT brings holiday cheer with hilarious messages on 130 road signs
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – The Ohio Department of Transportation is trying to take some of the stress out of vacation travel with humorous posts on digital freeway bulletin boards statewide.
The concept was introduced in 2015: Instead of road signs showing travel times to certain locations, witty messages were broadcast on Ohio highways in the run-up to Christmas.
These are some of the funny messages seen on the roads.
Over 130 message boards were used to remind drivers to drive safely; some signs have been used with humor and some have been used seriously.
“These creative and fun messages are meant to spark conversations about safety and, hopefully, inspire behavior change.” noted ODOT director Jerry Wray.
The signs were a hit across Ohio.
a estimated at 4.6 million Ohioans are expected to travel over 50 miles this holiday season.
