State posts coronavirus warnings along Georgia highways

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.” 

For a laugh and a break from the coronavirus news, you can read about GDOT’s humorous roadside traffic safety messages here.
