Voting for My Maine Sign Contest to Begin

Augusta – Voting begins on Friday, April 20th for the My Maine Sign! contest.

For the past two weeks, MaineDOT has been pouring through nearly 2,000 safety related messages submitted to the My Maine Sign contest. The messages are designed to fit on highway message boards that are displayed throughout the state. The department has selected 60 top messages that are funny, smart and clever dealing with safety subjects such as distracted driving, speeding, tailgating, impairment…even eating while driving. Any of those 60 may appear on the highway signs in the future.

Now it’s time for the public to vote on their favorites. To cast your vote, please visit: You will see entries for our large and smaller boards. The website is set up for “traffic light voting.” Underneath each message is a:

  • Red light for “Don’t like it”

  • Yellow light for “Like it”

  • Green light for “Love it!”

Individuals can vote once daily between April 20th and 30th.

Prizes to be awarded include passes to the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory, Gray Animal Park and to Maine State parks.

So, vote early and vote often!
