Halloween means the little ones are ready to dress up and grab their fair share of candy and sweets, and hopefully avoid the one person in the neighborhood handing out pennies—don’t be that person.
It also means drivers should be extra careful driving this evening as kids scurry about. Chevrolet offered up a few tips to ensure a safe Halloween for everyone. After all, twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween compared to any other day of the year. Let’s reduce that horrendous stat, shall we?
Tip number one: drive very slow, especially on high-traffic roads where kids are actively trick-or-treating.
Tip number two: take advantage of various active safety systems. Rear and forward-facing cameras offer additional views to keep pedestrians safe.
Tip number three: put the phone down and keep it stored away to eliminate distractions.
Tip number four: while it may seem tempting, don’t drive with a mask. Wearing anything to obstruct the view ahead isn’t smart.
Tip number five: obviously, seat belts should be worn all the time.
