Halloween Driving Safety Tips for 2018

HalloweenHalloween is right around the corner, which brings young children out onto suburban streets after dark. That makes it imperative that you follow these basic Halloween driving safety tips:

  • Slow down: You should always follow the speed limit, especially in residential areas. But on Halloween, travel under the speed limit in neighborhoods, as children sometimes dart out into the street unexpectedly.
  • Be careful when backing out of driveways: Children will be running along sidewalks with no regard for cars. If backing out of a driveway, do so extra cautiously, using your backup camera for extra visibility.
  • Turn your headlights on: Even when the sun is still setting, turning your headlights on will increase your visibility — and make you more visible to pedestrians, including costumed trick-or-treaters.
  • If possible, stay home: Shouldn’t you be passing out candy anyway? But in all seriousness, if you can avoid driving at this time, please do so.
  • Be on alert for drunk drivers: Even after trick-or-treat hours, be on high alert. Some people unfortunately put others at risk by drinking and driving, especially on the holidays. If you see a drunk driver, stay away and call the police immediately. If you have had anything to drink, do not drive: Call a friend or call a cab.
