Driving Safety Home

Driving Safety Home reminds everyone to make transportation safety a priority...

Driving Safety Home is the Arizona Department of Transportation's campaign to reduce the number of people seriously injured and killed in preventable transportation-related incidents.

Launched in 2013, the initiative aims to motivate positive changes in driver behavior through an increased awareness about transportation safety. Monthly messages from ADOT's state engineer encourage drivers to model a strong safety culture — previous topics have included teen-driver safety, distracted driving and work-zone awareness.

Did You Know?

Most fatal and injury crashes and incidents are totally preventable! Simply fastening a safety belt, slowing down, wearing a helmet or waiting to send a text message can be the difference between life and death or a lifetime with a painful or debilitating injury. 

Take the Driving Safety Home Pledge

By taking this pledge, you agree to make safety a priority and set a positive example for others. It is a step that demonstrates your individual commitment to this lifesaving effort. Print it, sign it and post it where you'll see it every day.
