The Texas Department of Transportation is once again coming through with dad humor via its road sign messages. As it did last Thanksgiving week, TxDOT is displaying witticisms such as "Gobble Gobble, Go Easy on the Throttle" and "Feast Your Eyes on the Road, Drive Safely" to encourage Texas drivers to exercise caution during holiday travel.

Speeding is among the most common preventable factors that lead to fatal crashes. Failure to stay in one lane, driver inattention and driving under the influence are also top causes, the department said.
So, yes, go easy on the throttle, and stay safe, San Antonio.
