PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Arizona Department of Transportation needs your help to decide the safety messages that will be displayed on Valley freeways.  

ADOT received nearly 7,000 submissions to its safety message contest and they have selected 20 finalists to continue.

Over the past weeks, Valley residents have been sending in their creative sayings and safety tips about speeding, texting and seat belt use while driving.

“People are reading the signs and we hope they’re taking the messages to heart, sharing with others and choosing to make the roads safer for us all,” said Kevin Biesty, ADOT deputy director for policy, in a press release.

According to ADOT, the submissions included funny, original and serious statements. 

From today through March 15, you can vote on the messages for overhead signs throughout the state. 

ADOT began placing original messages on highways more than a year ago to promote a change in dangerous driving behaviors.
