Iowa Department of Transportation is known to put interesting safety messages out on the state's interstate signs every single week. They range from informative, deadly serious, to sometimes pretty humorous.

For nearly a decade, Iowa DOT has been putting out these unique signs as reminders of the importance of safe driving. According to a report, the department used to have the messages go up on signs along the interstate on Mondays. Since July of 2021, these "Message Mondays" have since become "Message Fridays."

You can see more of the funnier messages down below!

Hilarious Iowa DOT Signs

Anyone else share a sense of humor with a state's Department of Transportation? Just me? Well, every Monday the Iowa Department of Transportation puts up a sometimes hilarious, sometimes straightforward message on their road signs across the state. This is called "message Monday" and Iowa DOT tries to entertain and educate drivers through these signs. Here are just a few of our favorites.

However, I think the message that was put out on Friday, October 7th might be the best one yet!

It's been nearly 29 years since the hit Halloween movie 'Hocus Pocus' first became a must-watch during the month of October. This spooky season, fans are celebrating the long-awaited sequel which premiered on Disney + earlier this month.

This film brings back Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as the outrageous Sanderson sisters as they run amok in Salem, Massachusetts.

In celebration of 'Hocus Pocus 2' Iowa DOT ran with a fun and informative message to remind drivers to be careful of deer out on the roads. According to Zero Fatalities Iowa on Facebook

"Harvest season is upon us. With crops coming out of the fields, we’re starting to see more activity with deer running amok sometimes finding themselves on Iowa roads."

Nearly 8,000 crashes with animals were reported last year. Read more about the safety suggestions down below!

The recent message references Winnifred and Sarah Sanderson's well-known exchange:

"All Hallow's Eve has become a night of frolic! Where children wear costumes and run amok!" the red-headed witch exclaims.

"Amok! Amok! Amok!" Sarah sings.


In honor of that famous moment, Iowa DOT came up with this message!

"Bucks are running amok, amok, amok watch for does too..."
