Driving Safety Home: Sharing what you know

Driving Safety Home: Sharing what you know

At ADOT, we share many safety messages throughout the year. From reminding drivers to buckle up and expect the unexpected to telling them about dust stormswork zones and even cyberscams.

ADOT does an excellent job communicating with the public. However, as individuals, we also have an important role to play.

By sharing transportation safety information with our family, friends and loved ones, each of us can make an impact. I encourage you to be an ambassador and share our agency’s safety resources with your circle.

Just for an example, you could remind a neighbor who is planning a trip up north to prepare for snow, and you could point them toward our Know Snow web page

You could also let a family member know about — ADOT’s Travel Information site. You can tell your friends about ADOT’s Twitter feed (@ArizonaDOT), which is an excellent source for traffic information, and our Focus on Driving site, which offers safe-driving tips and resources. While you’re at it, you might share our new ADOT Kids site, which includes a lot of safety tips, and is aimed toward school-aged children.

ADOT has so much safety information to share, and I hope you’ll join me in spreading the word!
