Arizona has some of the best road systems in the nation, with beautiful scenery. As a result, driving about Arizona in a hire car is a good way to experience its breathtaking attractiveness. However, Arizona's weather has a big impact on how safe the roads are. Although severe weather events are rare, Arizona summers usually include a monsoon season. This time of year can be vision-impairing due to the heavy rain, ferocious winds and dust storms. Therefore, if you visit Arizona during the monsoon season, avoid driving on routes that have been identified as being susceptible to flash floods.
Although Arizona traffic regulations are similar to other states, there are a few driving laws that you should be aware of before hitting the road. Drunk driving is prohibited in the state of Arizona. According to the state statute for driving under the influence, there are no exceptions. A penalty or jail sentence is likely for BAC levels over 0.08%. However, if a law enforcement officer believes you are intoxicated, you may still face penalties regardless of your BAC level. Additionally, Arizona forbids using a phone while driving. Thus, you might opt to use a hands-free gadget that is permitted by law. The same holds true for distracted driving; a police officer may issue you a penalty for engaging in certain activities while driving, such as eating. To be safe, remember to double-check any recent updates to Arizona's driving laws with the DMV. Arizona has a variety of speed limit zones due to the state's diverse environments, which range from flat deserts to mountains. In most places, the speed limit in school zones is 15 mph (24 kph), whereas the speed limit in business districts is 25 mph (40 kph). Keep an eye out for any construction areas with strict speed zones.
The legal minimum age to hire a car in Arizona is 18 years. However, there is a surcharge policy applied to most car hirers under the age of 25, to cover insurance. Additionally, the car hire company may also restrict the type of vehicle you can hire. Always contact the car hire company in advance to find out their policies.
