DPS Encourages all Motorists to Drive Courteously This Holiday Season

Arizona – The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS), through its Highway Patrol Division, encourages all travelers to drive with due regard and courtesy for fellow travelers this holiday season while abiding by all traffic laws.

DPS also encourages motorists to fully prepare for road trips by obtaining sufficient rest and carrying necessary supplies, including emergency food and water along with cold and wet weather clothing. Motorists should also make sure key components on their vehicle are in safe working order prior to embarking on a trip.

During this holiday season, DPS will continue to measure up to our long-standing motto, “Courteous Vigilance,” by patrolling Arizona’s highways for stranded motorists, violations related to seatbelt usage, speed, impairment, and all dangerous driving behaviors.

Try to limit your travels during any inclement weather that may occur and, if possible, avoid travel all together within areas affected by major storms.

Recommended equipment to keep in a vehicle are snow chains, a shovel, tools, flashlights, first aid gear, and communication devices.

To check the latest winter road conditions, call 5-1-1 or view the information on the web at www.az511.gov.

Check with your local news outlet for updated weather conditions.
