Jump in Car Accidents during Halloween

In Florida, car accidents involving pedestrians jumps almost 25% during the Halloween week.  Since there are more cars and pedestrians on the road in the evening, there is more potential for dangerous situations.  The spike is not limited to Halloween.  Both Thanksgiving and Christmas also see a jump in accidents involving pedestrians.

Please follow these tips for a safer Halloween:

  1. Don't drink and drive.
  2. Don't text and drive.
  3. Don't text and walk.
  4. Carry a flashlight while trick or treating.
  5. If possible, have children wear light and bright costumes to be more apparent to drivers.

Holiday car accidents that involve alcohol are responsible for nearly half of car accident fatalities.  Drivers and pedestrians remaining alert will make Halloween a much safer holiday for the trick or treaters.
