Note: Please drive slowly; speeding is the most common cause of accidents on these roads!
Conditions in the park can be hazardous. Please obey posted speed limits. Use lower gears on long downhill sections to prevent overheated brakes. Use of seatbelts is required in both Nevada and the park. Please stop only at pullouts. Watch for pedestrians and wildlife (especially deer on the Scenic Drive and marmots on Baker Creek Road). Congestion in the visitor center parking areas can lead to accidents. Please use caution.
