7. Marked Safe from Rod Run Traffic

Locals and lovers of the Great Smoky Mountains and the surrounding areas will appreciate this design.

This vector features a satirical take on social media’s marked safe message.

If you’re not familiar with the Pigeon Forge Rod Run, it’s a hyper-popular car show event that comes to town twice a year. It attracts car enthusiasts from miles away. But it also attracts a lot of unwanted area traffic.

Some say it can even turn the normally 15-minute drive from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg into a 3-hour commute.

This design reads “Marked Safe from Rod Run Traffic” and comes in SVG, PNG, EPS and PDF file formats.

Keeping with that Rod Run traffic theme, we also have the ever-popular “I Survived Rod Run Traffic” design – which looks great on a t-shirt, or a car sticker.

It features the words “I Survived Rod Run Traffic“.

We also have a version with an illustration of a car and a mobility scooter (if you know you know).

This one also comes in PNG, EPS, PDF and SVG formats.
