Throughout this Christmas season, MDOT is using digital message signs to remind the public to drive safely this holiday season while having a little fun.
MDOT created the 12 days of Christmas message boards to remind drivers that this is a busy time of year and they need to take extra care when out on the roadways.
They say they also wanted to find a fun way to engage with the public to help ensure these safety messages would stand out.
These 12 days of messages revolved around Christmas themed movies, songs, and characters.
However, any emergency messages and traffic updates automatically override any message already on the boards.
Ninety-percent of vehicle crashes are caused by driver decisions such as speeding, distracted driving or driving while impaired.
