Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is a fun time for both adults and children alike. Going from house to house collecting goodies is something children look forward to every year. But, according to statistics, pedestrians are more likely to be injured on Halloween. These four safe driving tips will help you avoid seriously injuring a pedestrian.

  • Drive slower than normal. Normally the speed limit in most neighborhoods is 25 miles per hour. But, on Halloween you should drive at least 5 mph slower than the speed limit.
  • Look carefully for children that may dart out in front of your car. Children have candy on their brain and may not be thinking about cars.
  • When stopping to let kids out, turn on your hazard lights. This will let other drivers know to slow down.
  • Do everything you can to make sure your kids are easily visible. Halloween costumes can be dark, so to combat that you should give your children flashlights or glow sticks to make sure that they are seen.
