MADISON, Wisc. — Someone at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is a big Star Wars fan.

In honor of Star Wars Day, observed on May 4 every year, the agency posted an amusing highway sign at US 12/18 at Todd Dr. which reads "Trust the force: A Jedi always buckles up."

The DOT has had fun with their signs plenty of times in the past. Last year, they posted a similar message for Star Wars Day.

In 2016, they posted a sign that said "Drive now, catch Pokemon later," during the Pokemon Go craze.

Hopefully the message gets a few more people across the state to buckle up as they chuckle.
