Safety Message Contest

You've seen the unconventional traffic safety messages ADOT displays on overhead signs. For the second year in a row, ADOT is launching a safety message contest and the winning message will appear on overhead signs statewide.

Messages can be submitted on this page through Feb. 26. After that, ADOT will review submissions and select 15 messages to advance to the next round. In March, we’ll post the finalists on our website and let the public decide the winners. The top two vote-getters will be displayed on overhead signs statewide.

Have fun creating your message, but follow these guidelines:

  • Signs accommodate three lines and 18 characters, including spaces, per line.
  • #Hashtags, phone numbers and website addresses are not allowed.
  • Signs can’t accommodate emojis ☹.





Contact information is not required, but please include it below if you’d like to be contacted if your message wins.
