HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS
Tips from AAA on ways motorists can help keep roadways safe this Halloween:
- Avoid driving through neighborhoods. If possible, avoid cutting through residential streets where trick-or-treaters are likely to be.
- Watch for children in the street. Trick-or-treaters may not pay attention to cars and cross mid-block or between parked cars.
- Slow down. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a pedestrian is more than twice as likely to be killed if they’re hit by a car traveling at 35 mph compared to 25 mph. What seems like a small difference—just 10 mph—can be the difference between life and death.
- Drive sober. Always designate a sober driver if you plan to drink. Visit www.PreventDUI.AAA.com to learn more.
Simple steps for parents to help keep trick-or-treaters safe:
- Check costumes. Choose disguises that don’t obstruct vision, opt for non-toxic face paint instead of masks, and add reflective material or tape to keep kids visible.
- Trick-or-Treat together. AAA recommends that parents accompany young trick-or-treaters.
- Make a plan. Review trick-or-treat safety precautions and plan your route ahead of time. Remind children never to cross the street mid-block or from between parked cars.
Buckle up. If driving trick-or-treaters between neighborhoods, always use appropriate seat belts or car seats and have children exit and enter on the passenger side of the vehicle.
