Caution: Horrific Halloween Accidents

Halloween has become a festive tradition that millions of Americans partake in annually. Whether it is going door-to-door to collect candy, watching scary movies, or throwing/attending a Halloween party; it is a “spook-tacular” time of year for people of all ages. Unfortunately, Halloween can also be a dangerous time of the year for pedestrians and motorists.

The scary reality is that Halloween is one of the deadliest days of the year, especially for pedestrians. Halloween night is like a “perfect storm” of risk because it involves darkness, a big increase in pedestrian traffic, especially children, and all sorts of distractions.

How to Avoid Halloween Accident Dangers

Halloween is almost here and it’s time to dust off your costumes and get ready for a night of freakishly frightening fun and trick-or-treating. Although October 31 is about having fun, you also need to be aware of the safety risks during the festivities, especially where children are involved. Below are some dangers to be careful about and tips on how to avoid them.

  1. Plan ahead before getting behind the wheel.

    Roads and streets will be busy with cars and pedestrians on Halloween. Allow enough time to get wherever you are heading to. Do not get distracted while driving because you need to pay close attention to what’s happening on the road and sidewalks.

  2. Don’t take any risks of drinking and driving.

    Drinking and driving is never recommended, regardless of how little you’ve had to drink. This tip is even more important to remember on Halloween when the streets are extra busy – especially with young “trick-or-treaters”.

  3. Be cautious of more pedestrians.

    Remember, there will be far more people out and about, roaming the streets on Halloween. As such, it is important to be extra cautious and vigilant about pedestrians.

  4. Alert your kids to potential dangers.

    Statistics show that children are twice as more likely to be killed in traffic collisions on Halloween. So, it is important that they are alert to traffic safety. Reiterate road safety rules, especially if they are going trick-or-treating.

  5. Don’t get distracted by costumes.

    If you are driving on Halloween, chances are you will be dealing with a car full of costumes that can be a hotbed for potential distractions. You can also become easily distracted by pedestrians’ costumes on the road. It is important to keep focused on your driving and the road conditions to avoid any potential accident.
