Holiday spirit hits our overhead signs

Triple Dog Dare

By Doug Pacey / ADOT Communications

Unless you’re taking the reins of a magical flying sleigh with nine reindeer, there’s no need to speed this weekend. Slow down, obey speed limits and secure your spot on Santa’s Nice List.

As you travel Arizona’s highways in the days leading up to Christmas, you’ll see safe-driving holiday-themed reminders on our overhead signs to slow down and buckle up. The first message riffs on the popular movie, “A Christmas Story.”

Before hitting the highways, download the ADOT Alerts app – it’s free for iOS and Android devices – so you’ll know if highways near you are affected by a major, unplanned event, like a crash-related closure or severe weather.

And here’s an early Christmas gift from all of us at ADOT: No highway closures are scheduled during the Christmas and New Year’s weekends.
