What could possibly go wrong?

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

Relying, once again, on the maturity and seriousness of Austinites, the city’s Transportation Department has decided to ask for help with its new electronic roadway signs, which will display “clever driving and safety tips.” Winning messages will be displayed on digital roadway signs around the city. Those hoping to win can email their entries to or tweet them to @AustinMobility using the #ontheroadATX hashtag. Contestants have “up to two alternating panels of text with up to three lines of text per panel and a maximum of 14 characters per line.” For more tips, and examples, here is a complete press release from the Transportation Department.
