ADOT New Year's message board.

A little more than a year ago it all started with peas-in-guac reference. Now those safety slogans on signs above Arizona highways will be written by one clever Arizonan — if only for a short time.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is hosting a contest starting Monday for you submit your own.

Department spokesmanDoug Pacey said they wanted to open the contest to the public and tap into some of their creativity and tap into that.  

“We see suggestions all the time on social media when we post the messages to Twitter and Facebook. So, we kind of wanted to create a contest where people can submit their own safety messages,” Pacey said. 

ADOT will take submissions for two weeks on their website. Then, they’ll choose the best 15. From there, the public gets to vote on their favorite which will be on signs across the state for two days in April.
