You can vote starting today through March 21st here.
ADOT say after judging the submissions, many Arizonans are fed up with speeders, impaired drivers, HOV lane cheaters and drivers who don't use turn signals.
John Halikowski, the Director of ADOT, says, "it's great to see so much engagement from the public about safe driving."
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 90% of vehicle collisions are caused by driver decisions; speeding, driving recklessly, distracted or impaired driving.
Halikowski says, "we can all become better drivers and hopefully things like the safety messages and this contest will spark conversation that make people think twice about the decisions they make when they get behind the wheel."
