Tennessee Dept. of Transportation uses quips to warn drivers
Posted on Monday, December 8th, 2014
Tennessee drivers were given a small request by officials from the state Department of Transportation: “Keep your eyes on the road and your head out of your apps,” the Tennessean reported on November 14.
Around 60 digital interstate designs all over Tennessee display different messages to motorists using the highways, informing drivers about recent accidents, road conditions, and special events that may cause traffic to be congested.
The signs also post driving tips and values such as wearing seat belts, avoiding drinking while driving, and preventing distracted driving.
Some displays, including those that tell of traffic fatalities within the state, sparked debates regarding the appropriateness of the program. The recent figures are usually posted on a Friday, confronting motorists who use the highways for long trips back and forth.
