Driving safety tips and resources from the Arizona Department of Transportation at FocusOnDriving.com keep motorists prepared on Arizona’s roads.


How to avoid a wrong-way driver

The "Drive Aware, Get There" safety campaign was developed to educate drivers on what to do if they encounter a wrong-way driver or an overhead sign warning of one.

The campaign will help motorists minimize the risk of being in a crash with a wrong-way driver. In addition, ADOT has taken extensive steps to address the threat of wrong-way drivers, including installation of a first-of-its-kind thermal camera system on I-17. Also, larger and lowered "Wrong Way" and "Do Not Enter" signs have been installed on hundreds of freeway ramps and overpasses statewide.
