Take a “Selfie” with Baby Barrel Bob at the Columbia Mall
Help MoDOT Raise Awareness for Work Zone Safety
The Missouri Department of Transportation invites you to take a “selfie” with mascot Baby Barrel Bob at the Columbia Mall from March 23-29. Baby Barrel Bob’s appearance at the mall is part of MoDOT’s campaign to help raise awareness for Work Zone Awareness Week (23-27) by reminding motorists to “protect your selfie” and others by avoiding distracted driving.
Baby Barrel Bob will be stationed near the children’s play area inside the Columbia Mall at 2300 Bernadette Drive in Columbia. MoDOT requests you post your “selfie” with Bob on Facebook and tag “MoDOT Central Missouri District” to help remind motorists to drive safely through highway work zones. You can also tweet your “selfie” with Bob on Twitter to @MoDOT_Central with the hashtag “#ProtectYourSelfie.”
If you’re unable to make it to the Columbia Mall, MoDOT welcomes “selfies” that promote safe driving, such as buckling up, but reminds you never to take photos while driving. Selfies can be e-mailed to CDCR@modot.mo.gov, tagged to MoDOT Central Missouri District on Facebook or hashtagged #ProtectYourSelfie for use on the district’s social media pages.
