PHOENIX, Ariz. – The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has installed six signs notifying motorists to turn on their headlights during the day on State Route 169. According to ADOT, the use of daytime headlights will help to increase visibility and improve safety. The signs were placed along the highway corridor between I-17 and SR 169. Bob LaJeunesse, ADOT’s Northwest District regional traffic engineer, said ADOT hopes that increasing visibility will help to reduce the number of head-on collisions along the two-lane highway.
According to crash statistics, there have been eight head-on collisions on SR 169 during the last five years, five of which included fatalities. Law enforcement will issue citations to drivers who do not have their headlights on in designated areas where signs have been posted.
