"Pull Aside, Stay Alive"
That’s the familiar message to drivers from the Arizona Department of Transportation as another summer monsoon season approaches.
For the third year, ADOT continues its efforts to educate drivers about the threat of dust storms as monsoon season officially begins in Arizona on June 15. ADOT and its partners – the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Arizona Department of Public Safety and the National Weather Service – show motorists the real meaning of “Pull Aside, Stay Alive” with new television and radio public-education announcements that focus on the devastating outcomes for drivers who try to drive through dust storms.
The new public-education announcement focuses on a recent dust-related fatal crash along Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Tucson. The “911 Call” announcement illustrates what can happen to drivers who do not heed the “Pull Aside, Stay Alive” message. Audio of 911 calls from the crash are heard against visuals of emergency personnel moving among crushed vehicles and semi-trucks surrounded by blowing dust.
ADOT’s mission is to provide valuable information to drivers before they get caught in a low-visibility dust storm. The agency’s top recommendation is to avoid driving into a wall of dust at all costs.
“Driving into a dust storm is very dangerous, but the key is that oftentimes it can be avoided,” said ADOT Director John Halikowski. “Drivers must be ready to alter their plans if there is a threat of a dust storm. It’s better to change plans than try to power through dangerous conditions. But if you’re on the road and a dust storm suddenly appears near you, pull off the highway as quickly and safely as possible. Never drive through a dust storm. It’s not a risk worth taking.”
Because dust storms can develop very quickly, particularly along the Interstate 10 corridor between Phoenix and Tucson, ADOT uses several methods to get information to drivers. These include electronic highway message boards, social and traditional media, communication with ADOT staff and law enforcement officers in the field, television and radio advertising, and close coordination with partnering agencies.
Throughout this week, which is Arizona Monsoon Awareness Week, ADOT will be using social media to engage Arizonans in spreading the word to “Pull Aside, Stay Alive.” There will be posts on the ADOT Blog (azdot.gov/blog), Facebook page (facebook.com/AZDOT) and Twitter account (twitter.com/ArizonaDOT).
Please visit PullAsideStayAlive.org for the new public-education video along with videos from past years. The website also includes a tip sheet, which ADOT encourages drivers to print and keep handy in their vehicle.

Father’s Day is a time for ties, socks and Old Spice. But one family have set a new bench mark that many sons and daughters will find hard to replicate this Father’s Day. The story goes that way back in 1962 a young Cecil R. Sims, fresh out of College and in the Forestry Service, drove down from Williams to Phoenix with his good friend Carl Winslow to purchase a new Chevrolet truck. They followed the historic arrow on Camelback and purchased a new 1962 Chevy half-ton pickup from Courtesy Chevrolet for $1,700.
The truck stayed in the family all these years and racked up 300,000 miles of memories. Beside this is a picture of Cecil’s family on one of their many adventures. It got sold from family member to another, but was still in the Cecil Sims family. For the last 15 years, the Chevrolet truck was down on its luck and close to scrap, and it may have ended its days that way.
However Cecil Sims daughter and son in law hatched a plan. Cecil’s daughter said to her husband, “Let’s restore the Chevy truck and give it back to father as a surprise this father’s day”, this was in December 2013. Jim Anderson wistfully said, let me think on this over a beer, or two. Keep in mind, the truck was not in pristine condition, and 5 and a half months was a tall order to completely rebuild a 1962 truck. It had been sitting for 15 years and had over 300,000 miles on it! But, keep in mind, it was a Chevrolet. Jim Anderson agreed to the challenge and keeping this a complete surprise, spent the next five and have months deconstructing and rebuilding this 1962 Chevrolet truck to pristine condition. Jim reached out to Courtesy Chevrolet with the ultimate Father’s Day surprise.
But Ssssshhhhh, this is a secret, no one let the word out. Cecil Sims cannot find out. Jim approached Courtesy Chevrolet to redeliver the truck on the showroom floor this Saturday, June 14th, 2014. Family and friends, and the team that helped rebuild the 1962 pickup will join the celebration at noon at Courtesy Chevrolet on Camelback. Now, keep in mind, this is a surprise, Cecil Sims has no idea, but at 12:00 he will see his 1962 truck restored to its glory on the showroom floor where he bought it from Courtesy Chevrolet.
WHEN: Courtesy Chevrolet, 12th Street and Camelback
WHEN: 12pm, 6/14/2014
