For many people, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to take time out and show someone close how much they’re loved.

At the Arizona Department of Transportation, we can’t think of a better way to show those closest to us how much they’re cared for than by choosing to engage in unselfish driving decisions that make roads safer. Whether the people closest to you are in the passenger seat, back seat or another vehicle, choose not to speed, drive aggressively, impaired or distracted, and make sure everyone is always buckled up.

In an effort to make that connection, many overhead highways signs statewide will display the following safety message, “Take it slow on Valentine’s Day, obey speed limit.”
