Safe Driving Tips for Halloween 2018

Drive at Slower Speeds.
Avoid speeding, especially through residential areas. Children will most likely be trick or treating and possibly in darker costumes that can be hard to spot at night. Driving slower will help you to be safe and stop quickly when needed.

Pay attention.
Do not drive distracted, there are so many things that commonly distract drivers today. Here are a few examples of how not to drive distracted:

  • Do not text and drive.
  • Do not eat food while driving.
  • Do not groom yourself while driving.
  • Do not do your make up while driving.
  • Do not smoke while driving.
  • Do not read while driving.
The list goes on and on, the point here is to keep your eyes on the road while driving.

Always designate a sober driver.
Kids aren't the only ones who choose to celebrate on Halloween. Several adults join in on the festivities as well. Several of the hose festivities can include alcohol, so designate a sober driver before choosing to go out to a Halloween party. Have a plan in place for how to get home safely.
