Trick-or-Treat Safety Tips

Trick-or-treating around the neighborhood is a joyous time for many pedestrians. However, it can also be hazardous. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reported that Halloween is one of the most dangerous times of the year for pedestrians, so if you're planning on driving this Halloween, follow our safety tips below.

It's never wise to drive when you're distracted, so don't use your cell phone or reach for items until you are safely stopped. It's also important that you keep the volume level low on your audio system so that you can hear what's going on around you.

Drive about 5 mph slower than the speed limit so that you have more time to stop if a little one darts into the street. You can also scan the road, curbs, medians, and sidewalks for pedestrians, and turning your headlights on during the daylight will help make you more visible to those who are trick-or-treating.
