The Georgia Department of Transportation has found that a dose of humor can help sell traffic safety messages. But sometimes a message is deadly serious.
GDOT has begun posting public health alerts along Georgia highways as the coronavirus outbreak escalates. Messages like “coronavirus/avoid public events” began popping up on digital highway traffic signs this weekend.
Other messages include “coronavirus/isolate elderly & chronically ill” and “coronavirus/please stay home/disinfect, wash hands.”
