Please be advised of adverse driving conditions this summer
An Arizona haboob can quickly reduce driving visibility to near zero. If you are driving through a dust storm which obscures your vision, we strongly advise you to follow these safe driving tips:
- Pull your vehicle off of the road, as far to the right as possible.
- Put the vehicle in “park”, turn OFF your headlights, and take your foot off of the brake.
- Make sure that everyone remains seated in the vehicle with their seat belts fastened.
- Wait for safe driving conditions to return.
By following these steps, you will reduce the chances that other drivers mistake your vehicle as the one to follow.
