#Taylor Swift is getting ready to release her new album next month by teasing some songs from “Reputation.” So far, we’ve only heard “Look What You Made Me Do” and “Ready For It,” yet people are already eagerly waiting for the singer to drop another track. Her lyrics from “Look What You Made Me Do” have also blown up, especially the “I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? 'Cos she's dead.” In line with this, this line is already being used to promote safe driving.

More than music

According to BBC News, Iowa has an overhead sign that has the exact same line from Swift’s song. However, “’cos she’s dead” has been replaced with “she’s driving” instead.

The Iowa #Department Of Transport has decided to use these lyrics to stop people from using their phones while driving. It’s part of their ongoing “zero fatalities” campaign where the state has a new theme every Monday.

These messages have to be snappy, which is why they should only be 18 characters long and over three lines. That said, 404 people were killed while driving last year in Iowa. Officials are now trying to think of new ways to reduce the number of casualties on the road. In 2016, they used the “Pokemon GO” craze to help promote smart and safe driving. It’s good to know that Swift’s music is also being used to save lives in spite of being a diss track. Her upcoming album is slated to release this Nov. 10.

Sending her love

In other news, the pop star recently sent flowers to the California police department following the fatal shooting in Las Vegas, according to Fox News.

She sent the package to the Foothill Community Police Station located in Los Angeles. LAPD intel analyst Kimberlee Binder shared Swift’s kind act on social media. “Talk about a class act! @taylorswift sent multiple bouquets of flowers and plants to our station, as one of our officers was shot in Las Vegas last night,” she wrote. “This is one of the smaller arrangements. Beautiful flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Much respect,”

Luckily, the unidentified officer is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery. The station is also trying to contact other officers that were present during the massacre. The pop star also tweeted during the day of the incident, stating that she had “no words” to describe her sorrow. She also sent her regards to the victims and families that were affected by the tragedy. More than 500 people were injured during Jason Aldean’s performance last Sunday night.
