For you drivers on your way home – watch out for children trick or treating. They don’t necessarily take the same precautions as adults, and they’re excited to get free candy. According to the NHTSA, Halloween increases the odds of a child being killed in the road by double. It’s darker outside, they are wearing costumes that might limit their visibility and may cause them to trip and fall. Slow down today when you’re driving. Stop at red lights, especially if you’re turning right, before completing your turn.
The NHTSA recommends driving 5mph below the speed limit tonight to give yourself extra time to react. For those of you who don’t want to slow down, keep in mind the police are looking for drivers who aren’t following the laws. Of all the days to go hands free, today is the day. Don’t use your phone while driving under any circumstances.
I hope all of you have a very fun day today and am excited to see the cool costumes tonight.
