Designed to help promote work zone safety, the DOT has turned to the public for a moniker for its 10-foot tall, orange and white-striped mascot.
Through Sunday suggestions are being sought for the mascot who will become the “face” of the department’s work zone safety efforts, and who will be making public appearances for the next several months. Voting on the top three names will take place Sept. 10 to 14 on Facebook.
To make a suggestion, submit the name to the CT Work Zone Safety official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CTWorkZoneSafety or tagged on Twitter with the hashtag, #ObeyTheOrange.
And although it might seem it, this is no joke.
“While this campaign is a fun way to get the message out, make no mistake that this is a very serious matter. Every life counts in Connecticut, and we are dedicated to providing the public with comprehensive information to improve motorist, worker and pedestrian safety in roadway work zones,” said Terri Thompson, Transportation Supervising Engineer for the CT Department of Transportation.
And the prize for winning? A CT Work Zone Safety prize pack, and recognition for submitting the winning name. Information: www.facebook.com/CTWorkZoneSafety.
