ADOT Asks You to Please Drive Safely

Remember these safety tips:
Weekend Freeways Travel Advisory
  • Check your vehicle, including the condition of your tires. Proper tire pressure can help prevent a blowout and improves gas mileage. Check oil and other fluid levels, and inspect belts and hoses.
  • Get plenty of rest before traveling, and take regular rest breaks.
  • Buckle up and obey speed limits.
  • Don't drive under the influence of alcohol. Arrange for a designated driver in advance.
  • Cell phones or GPS devices help in an emergency. Make sure they are fully charged.
  • If your vehicle breaks down or you need to change a flat tire, pull completely off the roadway. Please avoid areas with taller grass or brush because hot vehicle components can spark a fire.
  • Take plenty of food and water, and be prepared for changing weather conditions.
