Halloween is typically one of the highest days of the year for traffic accidents and fatalties, particularly car on pedestrian collisions. This Halloween falls on a Friday night. More people drink on Friday night and Halloween parties on weekends are more likely to include alcohol. If you are going out on Halloween to a party, remember these tips to avoid a drunk driving nightmare.
- Plan how to get home before you go to the party
- Give your keys to the designated sober driver before you begin drinking
- If you don’t have a designated driver, use the bus or a cab
- If you see some getting into a car drunk, either stop that person or call the police
For trick or treators, remember to keep lights on them for safety, stay with them when they are crossing streets and get the trick or treating done early.
Have a great Halloween and be safe!
