Roadway sign contest winners keeping it weird
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 by Nina Hernandez
The city’s Transportation Department just announced the 15 winners of its competition to spice up the warning signs on our roadways. In all five categories combined, the #OnTheRoadATX contest drew more than 300 entries this year. Highlights include “Austin Is Striving … For No Drinking and Driving,” “Road Construction Ahead … Please Drive Willie Slow” and “Do You Use Your Blinker? … It Would Be a Lot Cooler if You Did.” That last one we’ve all wanted to yell at someone on the road anyway. Thanks to contestant Logan Breen, that message will now be delivered in blinking orange light.
