The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is having a little fun with Star Wars Day, and reminding drivers to stay safe at the same time.

Fans of the massive science fiction franchise have marked May 4 ("May the fourth be with you," get it?) as Star Wars Day for years, and this year the DOT got in on the action by using its large interstate message boards:

"Trust the force, but always buckle up," the signs read.

This isn't the first time the DOT has garnered attention for its creative signage. During last year's "Pokemon Go" craze, signs appeared saying "Drive now, catch Pokemon later."
