Halloween Driving Tips From Freedom Honda
Happy Halloween, Freedom Honda fans! Halloween is quickly becoming one of the largest holidays celebrated in America, and there is no shortage of fun events going on in Colorado Springs. We love seeing all the creativity that everyone puts into their costumes and decorations. As fun as Halloween can be to celebrate, it can also be a dangerous time to be out on the road. To make sure everyone makes it home safely, be sure to follow these safe driving tips for Halloween.
If you’re driving, be aware of areas where there will be high concentrations of trick-or-treaters. You can be certain that subdivisions, residential areas, and church parking lots will be full of kids looking for candy. SLOW DOWN and make sure to keep an eye out for kids in costumes. As always, do not use your phone while driving and stay focused on the road. Halloween is one of the most pedestrian-heavy days of the year, and it’s important to be aware of all of the people walking around.
Also, Halloween is a popular time for parties. Be aware that the possibility of there being intoxicated drivers on the road is increased. If you plan on drinking, please designate a driver or order a taxi/Uber to take you home. If it’s possible, try to drive as little as possible. You’ll not only be making the roads safer, you’ll be able to enjoy the holiday!
If you’re a pedestrian trick-or-treating with your kids, make sure to keep a close eye on them. With all the excitement of Halloween, it can be easy to accidentally step out into the street. Make sure they stay on the sidewalk and avoid unnecessarily crossing the road. If your child’s costume is a dark color, make sure to add a piece or two of reflector tape so that they can be seen. If you’re going to be trick-or-treating in a particularly dark area, make sure bring a flashlight to light your way and make it easy for you to be seen by drivers.
No matter what day of the year it is, it’s always a good idea to drive cautiously. Whether you need driving tips, an oil change, or a new vehicle, the experts here at Freedom Honda are always ready to help you! Stop in today to see how we can help.
