Secure Your Load Day News Conference

Join us on Facebook live Tuesday, June 6 at 9:30 a.m. for a news conference to recognize Arizona Secure Your Load Day.

MAG, ADOT, and AZDPS will join forces to remind drivers it takes only a few minutes to properly tie down or cover a load. Hear Mesa Police Officer Sean Stoddard's powerful story of a near-death experience caused by an unsecured load and his message to other drivers.

Not Your Ashtray, Not Your Junkyard, Not Your Trash Can

We wouldn't trash our home. So why do we trash our roadways? Every year, more than 1 million pounds of litter is picked up from Valley freeways—that's just way too much! Arizona is our home. Let's show it a little less litter and a lot more love by bagging our trash and keeping vehicle loads safely secured.

It's just a few loose items, right? Actually, litter has an impact on everyone in Arizona. It not only costs us money to clean up, but it is unhealthy for us and the environment and causes serious accidents on our roads.
