Drivers along California's freeways are going to be seeing a new message posted on the electronic signs.  CalTRANS says that when there are no critical emergency or traffic safety messages or Amber Alerts, the signs will display the message:

"SERIOUS DROUGHT

HELP SAVE WATER"

 

The department says it is cutting back on its water usage as well with measures like not watering highway landscaping in areas of the state suffering the most and using more recycled water.
