Texas Department of Transportation is launching a statewide Digital Highway sign Contest to find the best and most cleverly made safe driving messages.
The contest is aimed to prevent impaired driving, both drunk or drugged driving, texting, not wearing seatbelts and or speeding.
Tx DOT officials say these are the deadliest mistakes drivers make on Texas roads.
Starting November 24 and ending December 8th Texas drivers are able to submit their entries and there is no limit to the number of entries a contestant can submit.
The top 10 entries will be posted on social media and voted on by the public.
The top three winners will see their messages posted in bright lights over Lone Star highways around the state.

Please use the following guidelines when creating your message:
- The message must bring awareness to the dangers of common driver mistakes such as distracted driving, impaired driving, not using seat belts, speeding, etc. We also will accept other rules of the road, such as “no tailgating” and “left lane for passing only.”
- #Hashtags, phone numbers and website addresses are not allowed. No offensive language.
- Signs accommodate 2 slides, each with 3 lines and up to 15 characters per line. Feel free to use both slides (6 lines) or just one slide (3 lines). – see examples:
