AAA tells Drivers, Don’t be a Fright on Halloween

October 30, 2019 | Email This Post Print This Post
 

AAANashville, TN – Halloween is one of the deadliest days of the year for pedestrians. AAA is reminding evening commuters and other motorists to expect more pedestrians on the road, as millions of children and families across the country will be trick-or-treating through neighborhoods.

Halloween ranks as one of the top 3 days of the year for pedestrian injuries and fatalities.

Halloween Safety Tips.

Halloween Safety Tips.

“This Thursday, commuters will be driving home during the same time children and their families are out trick-or-treating,” said Stephanie Milani, Tennessee public affairs director, AAA – The Auto Club Group.

“We encourage people who are out on Halloween to be alert, avoid distractions and never drive impaired,” Milani.

AAA offers the following safety tips for drivers:

  • Slow Down: Driving five miles per hour slower than the posted speed limit will give you extra time to react to children who dart out in front of you.
  • Use Headlights: Even if it’s not dark enough for headlights, use your headlights so that pedestrians can see your vehicle easier.
  • Constantly Scan Ahead: Broaden your scanning field by looking for pedestrians left and right, in yards, on porches, sidewalks or between parked cars.
  • Avoid distractions:  Looking away for only two seconds increases your chance of a crash.
  • Drive sober: Over 40 percent of fatal crashes on Halloween night involve a drunk driver. Always designate a sober driver if you plan to drink any alcohol. Visit www.PreventDUI.AAA.com to learn more.
    • Tow to Go is available October 31st- November 1st at 6:00am. Drivers can get a free tow within a 10-mile radius if they believe they are too impaired to drive. It is a program of last resort and more information is at Tow to Go.
