Caltrans is holding a contest and asking the state’s youth to come up with a name for its new mascot and since it’s winter break for students, it could be a great time to think about it.
Did you know the traffic cones you see along roadways have helped protect highway workers for more than 80 years? Safety cones play a huge role here in California by acting as indicators for drivers to reduce speed, be extra alert, watch out, and move over!
Entering is easy!
