Safe Driving Safety Tips for Halloween Night

Halloween is a night when children of all ages will be running through the streets on a quest for candy. Since many of them won't be paying proper attention to the road, it's important for drivers like you to pay attention to them.

Here's a few pieces of advice that can help you be a safe driver on Halloween.

  • Be alert while driving. Turn off your phone for fewer distractions.
  • Pedestrians always have the right of way. Yield to kids even if not in a crosswalk.
  • Never pass stopped cars, they may be letting their children out to trick or treat.
  • Keep your headlights on throughout the day and night, so your vehicle is more visible.
  • Children could be wearing dark costumes, keep extra vigilant in case they dart out in between parked cars to cross the street.
  • No matter the speed limit in your neighborhood, drive slowly.
