DPS holiday warning for drivers

Posted: Updated:

If you happen to be driving Friday when the fireworks are booming, the Department of Public Safety says keep moving.

It is illegal to stop on the highway for any reason other than an emergency.

DPS Highway Patrol officers plan to be out in full force Friday near the firework display at Tempe Town Lake in order to ticket drivers who stop on the highway.

DPS says the congestion can lead to deadly crashes.
