The Force is strong in Colorado... so strong, the Colorado Department of Transportation hopes, that it can pull drivers in the right direction.

On the day of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere in Hollywood, CDOT officials changed up their traffic signs locally.

"The Force is strong with you. Put down the phone," one of the interstate signs reads. They posted a photo to Twitter during the day Monday. Our Jaclyn Allen spotted it still posted at night, too.

They captioned the tweet, "Patience, young Jedi. You will get there soon. Eyes off your phone and instead on the road. #JediDriver."

It turns out this isn't the only Department of Transportation to hop on the Star Wars bandwagon. Arizona and Utah DOTs wanted in on the fun too.

Moral of the story: drive safely, you should - especially during a snowy commute.
