 Driving In The State Of Arizona

 

 
Children under five years of age must be in an approved child safety seat at all times in a moving vehicle.  All adult passengers must wear seatbelts.  Arizona requires that you carry automobile insurance for liability.  Interstate speed limit is 75 MPH.  Overnight parking at rest areas where permitted.  Right turn on red permitted unless otherwise posted.

Trailering requirements include pulling over 3,000 lbs., safety brakes are required, breakaway switch and safety chains are required.  Riding in travel trailers, 5th wheels, and truck campers is permitted in the state of Arizona.  Maximum width without escort is 102 inches.  Maximum combined length is 65 feet.  Vehicles pulling trailers and recreational vehicles are not permitted in the car pool lane.  In some areas in Arizona on the Interstates, cars pulling trailers and recreational vehicles are not allowed in the left lane (passing lane).

Please note that driving in Grand Canyon National Park puts a strain on your vehicle due to steep grades and high altitude.  Your vehicles power may be noticeably reduced and you should allow extra time and distance for passing.  Don't ride your brakes going down steep grades, downshift to a lower gear.  If your brakes start to loose effectiveness or start to squeal, pull over and wait 20 minutes for your brakes to cool.  If you are on a two lane road and trailering, pull over to let faster traffic pass as needed, do not try to regulate the speed limit.  Some areas may require you to drive with your headlamps on during the daylight hours.  Heed these indications.
