PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) - Comedian and host of "The Late Late Show" James Corden apparently approves of the Oregon Department of Transportation's new distracted driving initiative.

ODOT has been asking the public to submit "get your head out of your apps" ideas for electronic freeway signs.

One of the more recent messages read: "Drive like James Corden. Sing, don't text."

Corden is also famous for his wildly popular segment Carpool Karaoke, which involves him driving around with celebrities and singing:

ODOT tweeted a picture of its Corden-inspired sign Friday:

If you have a sign suggestion, you can submit it to ODOT on its Facebook page or its Twitter account, @OregonDOT.
