The Oregon Department of Transportation is running safety messages on those electronic signs that span Interstate 5 to remind drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.

It wants your suggestions on what those messages should say.

The agency is going to start running new messages in southern Oregon starting Friday. It will run messages each Friday in March and April.

Right now, it’s in its third week of the pilot program.

If you have a suggestion, ODOT asks that you keep it to three lines with 18 characters per line.

You can submit your suggestion to ODOT on its Facebook page or its Twitter account, @OregonDOT.

If your message is chosen, you may see it on one of those I-5 signs.

KATU's 11 p.m. anchor team came up with their own ideas of what safety message should be displayed. Take a look at Dave Salesky's, Craig Birnbach's and Steve Dunn's ideas in the above photo gallery.
