Keep Kids Safe this Halloween


Halloween is scary for more than one reason – namely, that twice as many child pedestrians are killed on Oct. 31 than any other day of the year.

In an effort to keep trick-or-treaters safe, SWERVE Driving School, which provides defensive driving courses and drivers education, has compiled a list of safe driving tips for Halloween:

  • The days are getting shorter, it’s getting dark earlier and children and adults alike will be wearing dark costumes and clothes. People will be out and about, and all drivers should practice defensive driving when behind the wheel, driving very slowly in residential areas, observing traffic laws, school zones and speed limits and taking special care to look both ways before turning.
  • Always use turn signals, even if you’re close to home or just driving down the block. Pedestrians can be difficult to see in costumes and masks.
  • Decorations can be distracting for drivers – keep your eyes peeled for unexpected objects such as pumpkins in the road and flashing lights and signs.
  • Check your city’s posted times for trick-or-treating, and avoid driving during these times if possible.
