Reminders for a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving meal
The entire team at Fountain Hills Law Firm would like to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving.

As we kick off a new holiday season, this is also a great opportunity to remind drivers that this is the time of year when it is especially important to be mindful on the roads. The snowbirds are back in Arizona, bringing with them a noticeable increase in traffic, and although Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings Time, daylight hours are getting significantly shorter, with Fall now in full swing.

Here in Fountain Hills, residents are enjoying the newly re-opened Saguaro Blvd. But even though all lanes are now open, there will still be workers in the streets over the course of the next few weeks. Keep a close eye out for workers on the road, watch your speed, and remember that speeding fines double in construction work zones.

The Thanksgiving holiday also means that Arizona DUI Task Forces will be operating, looking to arrest drivers who are driving under the influence. Keep in mind to be prepared if you are going to be drinking, such as appointing a designated driver, or taking a cab home.

If you do get a traffic ticket, remember that Fountain Hills Law Firm’s knowledgeable attorneys are here to assist you.
