Getting around Arizona

Side of road
Road classification

Driving around Arizona offers the best way to take in the state's spectacular scenery. The speed limit on most interstate freeways is 120 km (75 miles) per hour; it drops to 104 kmph (65 mph) near metropolitan areas.

Road conditions are good, but beware of dust storms which can rapidly decrease road visibility or occasional heavy rainstorms, particularly during the summer monsoon season.

It pays to be aware of hazard signs and roadblocks.

Signs warning of flooding risks should be taken seriously and never cross a running creek.
