This spring we held our first “Show Us Your Sign” contest to highlight all the different ways our signs are used. We asked our customers to submit images and videos of their ATS signs, and we shared each of them on our Facebook page between May and early June. The contest entry that received the most likes, comments, and shares on their post won a free Shield 12 radar speed sign with 90 days of TraffiCloud®!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest, and congratulations to our first, second, and third place winners:
