Drivers are now able to view important public service messages about Safe Driving and more, thanks to a new Public Service Announcement program by MassDOT's Office of Outdoor Advertising.
Outdoor advertising companies that hold permits to digital billboards approved by the Office are providing space on the billboards to assist public agencies.
The effort began in June 2010. So far, on average, more than 400 hours of PSAs have aired each month on eight boards around the State.
Communities with digital billboard locations include Chicopee (I-90), Foxboro (Rt. 1), New Bedford (Rt. 195), Fall River (Rt. 195), Medford (Rt. 93), Stoneham (Rt. 93) and Lawrence (Rt. 495).
Some of the past and current PSA’s include: Seatbelts Save Lives; Move Over For Emergency Vehicles – It’s the Law; and Texting While Driving Is Against the Law. For more information or to request a PSA please contact the Office of Outdoor Advertising, 617-973-8470.
