**Your Message Goes Here**

Recently, TDOT had a contest where you could put messages on their electronic billboards all over the state of Tennessee.  

You know the message boards that are all over the place.

Anytime you go to the public for something like this, you will get 10% of them that turn out to be really creative and a powerful message.

The other 90% is usually awful.

Absolutely Awful!

Here is the story from WKRN on some of the rejected ones from TDOT:

=========================================

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – In the wake of the Tennessee Department of Transportation holding a contest for messages to place on their electronic boards across the state, News 2 presents to you… The Rejects.

“Here are some of the funny, morbid, against the rules, or just plain bad we got,” said B.J. Doughty, the Director of Community Relations & Communications.

===========================================

 

  1. Warning! Speeding May Cause Bleeding!

  2. You shouldn’t be driving here after having a beer

  3. Drink some hops, meet the cops

  4. Not ready to meet your maker? Don’t be a risk taker

  5. Slow down there cowboy

  6. Lane Kiffin speeds. Don’t be like him. Go Vols.

  7. Texting and driving is a curse. Your next ride may be a hearse

  8. The coroner is not a cab service. Drive carefully

  9. All about that pace, bout that pace. No speeding

  10. Drive drunk, lose your junk

  11. Drive with a buzz, deal with the fuzz

  12. I like you better in your lane

  13. Elvis has left the building. Concentrate on your driving.

  14. If ur knee can’t text, what makes you think it can drive?

  15. Don’t give mama a broken heart. B safe. Thanks, Miranda

  16. Keep your hillbilly bones safe. Thanks, Blake

===============================================

 

 

Yes, awful.  

So the crack staff again at BJOTG came up with messages that should be all over the boards, all over the state.

Our hope is that at least one of this will eventually make the cut.

Or we might just put up our own signs.

=================================

======================================================

 

“PLEASE DRIVE WITH CAUTION, YOU NEVER KNOW WHO IS MAKING METH IN THE CAR NEXT TO YOU”

 

 

 

“YIELD TO ALL PEDESTRIANS, UNLESS IT IS THE BAND, FLORIDA-GEORGIA LINE”

 

 

DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE BUT PLEASE, PLEASE, POST FOOD PICS TO INSTAGRAM AT ANY TIME AND ANY SPEED”

 

 

IF YOU GET PULLED OVER, TELL THEM YOU WORK ON THE TV SHOW NASHVILLE.  TRUST ME ON THIS”

 

 

 

“NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU, MEMPHIS IS PART OF ARKANSAS”

 

 

“OUR GOVERNOR IS WORTH $2 BILLION”

 

 

“KEN WHISENHUNT WANTS YOU TO ALWAYS DRIVE WITH YOUR HANDS AT 2-10. HE PROBABLY MEANT 10-2 BUT HE’S USED TO SAYING 2-10.

#OHJOJO”

 

 

 

“THE NASHVILLE PREDATORS WANT TO TELL THOSE WHO TEXT AND DRIVE TO PUCK OFF AND THOSE WHO BUCKLE UP, THEY SAY, PUCK YES!”

 

 

 

“TENNESSEE RANKS 49TH IN LITERACY SO THESE BOARDS ARE PRETTY USELESS”

 

 

 

“PLEASE DON’T WRECK OR YOU WILL BE IN A GOD FORSAKEN BART DURHAM COMMERCIAL THAT WILL MAKE YOU WISH YOU DIED IN SAID WRECK”
