Prevent Arizona Car Accidents: Tips for Driving on a Holiday

By Breyer Law Offices on January 9, 2012

As Phoenix personal injury attorneys, we were pleased that there were no state highway or valley freeway construction closures during New Year’s weekend, which likely helped free up any traffic in the area and likely cut down on the number of crashes in the area. However, according to AZ Central, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) still warned drivers to “expect the unexpected” and always be ready for incidents or restrictions that may slow drivers down.

Arizona Car Accident Statistics

There were 15 fatalities caused by Arizona car accidents during Christmas and New Year’s weekends in 2010, according to AZ Central. Six of those fatalities were alcohol-related. Some tips to stay safe during the start of this New Year include:

  • Wearing a seatbelt at all times;
  • Obeying speed limits and slowing down even as necessary;
  • Checking your vehicle to make sure it is in proper working condition;
  • Never drive drunk or drowsy;
  • Avoid distractions;
  • Being aware of pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and other drivers at all times;
  • Avoiding high traffic areas;
  • Taking public transportation instead of driving.

Arizona Car Accident Resources

As Arizona car accident lawyers, we know that drivers who are informed are more likely to stay safe when driving which prevents Arizona auto accident injuries. Here is some information:

  • Drivers who want to get weather updates to avoid driving during bad weather conditions can visit azdot.gov/knowsnow.
  • Drivers who want information about highway conditions can sign up for email alerts from azdot.gov or visit Twitter at www.twitter/arizonaDOT, az511.gov, or call 511. They can also call 888-411-ROAD.
  • Those who find themselves unable to drive because they consumed alcohol can call the American Automobile Association (AAA) for a free 10-mile tow at 1-800-AAA-HELP.
