It really hurts when you’re rebuffed by your own government.
You most likely have seen the safety promotion the Arizona Department of Transportation is conducting to reduce accidents and traffic violations on the state’s freeways. ADOT has asked citizens to submit (character-limited) slogans or sayings for the department’s overhead digitial alert signs.
The entries touch on everything from drinking and driving and texting behind the wheel to using the HOV lane properly and using a turn signal.
The contest received more than 6,700 submissions, including 10 from me, and the agency has announced its 20 finalists.
The public can vote on its favorite signs through March 15 and two winners will be announced in April.
Not being judgmental of my fellow Arizonans, but with the exception of two entries, the rest are lame.
“Don’t drive intexticated” is excellent. “Get your head out of your app . . .” is very good.
