Halloween Safe Driving Tips
Halloween can be a time of great fun, but it’s also a time of increased risk for pedestrian-related accidents. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), young pedestrians are four times more likely to be hit on this night than on any other night of the year. As a driver or even as a parent of one of these young pedestrians, it is your job to keep alert and know how to keep them safe.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
WHAT YOU CAN DO IF YOU’RE A DRIVER TO STAY SAFE ON HALLOWEEN:
- Do NOT use your phone while driving.Children and pedestrians are not paying as much attention as they normally would to cars, so you should be on much higher alert with your full attention on the road.
- Use extra caution. Drive very slowly and watch for children and parents coming from walkways, crossing streets and running into the middle of the road.
- Don’t pass vehicles stopped in the roadway. Children may be getting in and out of these vehicles.
If you are a parent:
- Watch for vehicles in the road. Your children will be running to and fro, but you need to make sure they are not running into a dangerous situation.
- Be wary of drunk drivers. Halloween is a time for big parties and drinking and some drivers may be driving over their legal limit.
- If you are driving your children from house to house or to different neighborhoods, warn your children about getting out of the vehicle on a safe side and only after checking to see if the coast is clear.
