Want to stay safe while behind the wheel? Make sure your car is in tiptop shape.
KIds, teens and partygoers will be out in force today and tonight to trick or treat and otherwise celebrate Halloween. That’s a cue for drivers to be extra cautious when on the road. But, sadly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says not all drivers are watchful.
“Each year, Halloween is traditionally celebrated with trick-or-treating and parties — and candy and drinks. Unfortunately, the night often includes drunk drivers on the streets,” according to the NHTSA, which offers these safety tips to help ensure drivers have a fun Halloween:
- Be alert for trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Slow down and continue to scan the road in areas where they are likely to be or where sight distances are limited.
- On Halloween there will likely be more pedestrians on the roads and in places where they are not expected. Slower speeds save lives.
- Stay alert for pedestrians who may come out from between parked cars or behind shrubbery. Stop, wait for them to pass.
- Don’t look at your phone when you’re driving. Your attention needs to always be on the road.
- If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact law enforcement.
Drivers can do at least one other thing to make sure they’re safe while on the roads – make sure your car is in good working order. Make sure the brakes, headlights, steering and other systems are good to go and unlikely to suddenly fail.
