By Press release submission | Apr 8, 2019


Illinois Department of Transportation issued the following announcement on April 8.

The Illinois Department of Transportation is recognizing six members of the public for their creative ideas to improve safety as part of the department's digital message sign contest. More than 1,400 entries were submitted in six categories.

"Millions of drivers see our digital signs each year, so they are an important tool for heightened safety awareness on our roads," said Acting Illinois Transportation Secretary Omer Osman. "With more than 1,000 traffic fatalities last year, the public's messages could be the difference between life and death."

The six winners will receive a decorative, personalized street sign. Their messages will be in rotation on approximately 100 overhead dynamic message signs statewide in 2019.
