As warm, dry weather settles into our state, the Arizona Department of Transportation is urging drivers to use extra care with their vehicles to reduce the chance of igniting a wildfire.
Motorists should take preventative measures to reduce the risk that a spark from a vehicle or trailer doesn’t result in dry vegetation catching fire. A few tips include:
Dragging chains while something is being towed can cause sparks; Check and fasten the chains before starting your trip.
Make sure nothing is hanging under your vehicle or dragging on the pavement.
