Halloween Safety Tips for Drivers and Pedestrians

Get ready to turn your house into a candy store as hundreds of children are about to infiltrate your neighborhood. But the kids aren’t the only ones wanting to have a little fun on Halloween; the adults do too. Halloween isn’t just chalked full of candy, bobbing for apples or dressing up, it can also involve alcohol. Unfortunately, the use of alcohol can take over many Halloween parties and become a frightening issue.

Take for example these statistics:

  • 44% of national fatal crashes during Halloween weekend involved a driver or motorcyclist with a BAC of 0.08 or higher
  • 38% of fatal crashes that occurred on Halloween night involved a driver or motorcyclist with a BAC of 0.08 or higher
  • 23% of pedestrian fatalities on Halloween night included a drunk driver

The general rules to avoid a scary situation and adding to these statistics is to never drink and drive, eliminate distractions and don’t text and drive.  This is a great way to avoid car accidents. However, there is much more to this topic because so many children are involved on this holiday. Here are tips for drivers and pedestrians so everyone can enjoy a safe and happy Halloween.

Safety Tips for Drivers on Halloween

  • Avoid going out during trick-or-treating hours
  • Obey street signs and signals
  • Drive slowly in neighborhoods and residential areas
  • Prepare a ride home in advance

Safety Tips for Pedestrians on Halloween

  • Be visible at all times. Don’t rely on thinking that a driver can always see you. Wear brightly colored clothing and carry a flashlight after dark.
  • Stay on designated sidewalks and crosswalks. If there are no sidewalks available, walk facing oncoming traffic and stay off the road as far as possible.
  • Never consume alcohol before walking around, especially when you are responsible for children.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.

It is imperative that both pedestrians and drivers act responsibly. We understand that everyone wants to have a bit of their own fun on Halloween, but we ask you do it with safety in mind. From our family to yours, we wish you a happy, safe and candy filled Halloween!

Testimonial
  • "I was involved in an auto-accident with a drunk driver and after several weeks of frustrating interactions with their insurance company, I decided to contact Evan Kaine. He was upfront and honest about how the process works and never made any promises or raised my expectations. Evan understood that my first priority was to take care of the medical expenses that I incurred and he completely delivered. Communication is essential and I spoke directly with him and was never pawned off to another person. Bottom line - Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name." - M.T. Atlanta, GA

  • "Evan Kaine is a great attorney who kept me informed on all activity regarding my case. Always willing to go the extra mile to put me at ease. Very knowledgeable and thorough, always examining my case from every angle. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. Overall great legal service." - B.S. Roswell, GA

  • "My boyfriend Michael was hit by a drunk driver while he was driving my car. Even though I wasn't involved in the accident, Evan made every effort to make the process of getting my new car painless for me. He worked with my insurance company, kept in touch with me personally, and made me aware that he was working on my case around the clock. He also helped Michael get his medical bills paid ASAP. I would highly recommend Evan Kaine! " - B.D. Atlanta, GA

  • "I was in a minor car accident and wasn’t sure that I even had a case. I met with Evan and he explained the law in terms I could understand.

I highly recommend Attorney Evan Kaine." - G.S., Smyrna, Georgia

  • "To everyone LIKE ME who has had to deal with attorneys AND has that bad taste in their mouth because they have been taken advantage of because their lawyers are more interested in making money and not caring about YOU, well please allow me to introduce you to Evan Kaine.

Once more, as a person who has been through the trials and tribulations with lawyers, good, bad or indifferent, if you have an issue, PLEASE contact Evan and I mean this from the heart!
