If driving during the summer travel season, plan for unscheduled highway restrictions due to disabled vehicles, crashes or debris.

ADOT’s safe summer driving recommendations include:

·         Check your vehicle, including tire pressure and the condition of engine belts, fluids and windshield wipers

·         Get plenty of rest before driving – drowsy driving is a serious safety hazard

·         Be patient – obey speed limits and avoid unsafe passing or following other vehicles too closely

·         Buckle up and never drive while impaired

·         In case of an unscheduled closure and delays, bring extra drinking water, snack foods and emergency items such as a flashlight, medicines and fully charged cell phone.

Please do your part to reduce sparks and fires along highways. Tow chains dragging on pavement cause sparks that can start a fire. Don’t stop your vehicle in areas with dry grass or brush or toss lit cigarettes from a vehicle.

Remember, Arizona has a “Move Over” law that requires drivers to move over at least one lane – or slow down if it is not safe to change lanes – when approaching any vehicle with flashing lights pulled to the side of a road or highway.

Project schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather or other factors.

Because unexpected delays can occur due to crashes, disabled vehicles and weather, motorists should:

  • Pack extra drinking water and snacks
  • Get plenty of rest before driving – drowsy driving is unsafe
  • Never drive while impaired – arrange for a designated driver or ride service
  • Check vehicles, including tire pressure, engine belts and fluid levels
  • Be prepared to slow down and use caution in existing highway work zones
  • If traveling to the high country, pack an emergency preparation kit in your vehicle that includes cold-weather clothes and blankets
