The digital alerts that have been on display along New Jersey highways may be signing off for good.
Some of the signs that may no longer be in rotation as part of the New Jersey Department of Transportation's network include "Hocus pocus, drive with focus," "Be a dear, watch for wildlife," and "Get your head out of your apps."
"The signs are more relatable, it was a good approach," says Ariana Bass, of Phillipsburg.
The Federal Highway Administration reportedly asked the state to stop posting the catchy signs.
In a statement to News 12, the Federal Highway Administration said, "The Federal Highway Administration is aware of the changeable message signs and has reached out to the New Jersey Department of Transportation."
Some drivers say the messages stick in your head and seem pretty harmless.
