Safe Driving on Halloween

Halloween Driving

Halloween is beloved by children greatly because of trick-or-treating. However, this also means that there are lots of children roaming the streets come Halloween night. As such, it’s important to practice safe driving on Halloween to keep you and trick-or-treaters safe.

Turn On Your Headlights

Even if it is still light outside, be sure to turn on your headlights. This will make it easier for you to see children and for them to see you.

Put Away Any Distractions

A distracted driver is a dangerous driver, so make sure you put your phone away. You might even consider turning off the radio so you can pay even more attention to your surroundings. This will also help you hear what’s going on around your vehicle.

Drive Slowly

You should always follow the speed limit. However, on Halloween night, you should drive even slower. Driving slowly will help you stop faster if any excited kids dart out into traffic.

Yield To Pedestrians

If you are at a street corner or crosswalk, wait for pedestrians to cross the street. Then, carefully scan the road before continuing to drive.

We at H&H Chevrolet hope you and your children have a fun and spooky Halloween. Stop by our service department for repairs and routine maintenance before driving on Halloween.
