New 3-D CDOT Billboard Warns Of Drugged Driving

DENVER (CBS4) - The Colorado Department of Transportation has erected a new billboard in downtown Denver warning passersby against drugged driving.

It hangs at 1552 Curtis Street, and is a 3-D, 28-foot-tall message. A mangled car takes the shape of a joint, which lights up at night, with the words "Hits lead to hits."

CDOT said in a release that it's their latest tactic to raise awareness about the dangers of driving high, not to mention the fact that it's illegal.
