SALINAS, Calif. -

A new Caltrans Highway Safety campaign features the children of Caltrans’ field maintenance employees.

The message?  “Be Alert, My Mom/Dad’s at Work."

“I am very excited for these new billboards because they convey a very clear message that we all have families and want to return home safely to them at the end of our work day," says District 5 Director Tim Gubbins.

There will be approximately 77 of these billboards going up across California, including one south of Salinas on Highway 101.
