Due to the size of the signs, your submission has a character limit. A highway message can’t be longer than 51 characters (17 characters for each of the three lines).Unfortunately that means suggestions like "Call your state reps and tell them you want more state funding for public transit" or "Never drive" aren't going to fly, but it doesn't hurt to try.
Messages must be traffic safety related. Get bonus points if your submission focuses on one of Ohio's emphasis areas (Serious Crash Types, High Risk Drivers and Behaviors, and Special Vehicles and Roadway Users)
Your submission will be disqualified if it is defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent, harassing, bullying, threatening or unlawful.
