MEDFORD, Ore. — Do you ever feel like your mom is always watching you? Well, now some drivers in Oregon might be feeling that way with new freeway signs from the Oregon Department of Transportation.

According to KTVL, the signs along Interstate 5 are part of the “Messages from Mom” campaign that uses some common mom advice to light up the signs.

Some of the examples include: “Drop the phone because I said so, that’s why,” “Put the phone away, I’m going to count to 3,” and “Don’t text and drive … and eat your vegetables.”

All of the messages are signed by “Mom.”

The signs will last through the end of the month. Drivers can send creative mom advice to the Oregon Department of Transportation on Facebook and Twitter.
