Have A Happy and Safe Halloween, Everyone!

At Robert’s Auto Repair, we love celebrating Halloween, for it’s one of our favorite holidays. However, don’t get scary driving around while the little ghosts and goblins are Trick-Or-Treating. To help keep Halloween fun, we thought we’d provide some driving “tricks” and tips to stay safe on the road after dark on Halloween.

To help everyone bring home treats — not tragedies — follow these driving tips for a safe Halloween:
  • Don't use a cell phone while driving through neighborhoods. A single distraction could lead to a tragedy.
  • Stay well below the posted speed limit.
  • Pay attention to what's happening on sidewalks and roadways. Watch for children darting across streets, especially between parked cars.
  • Be extra alert when pulling in and out of driveways.
  • Do not assume children can see you or are paying attention. You need to take that responsibility.
  • Drivers should also check that all lights on their car work.
  • Do not pass other vehicles that have stopped in the roadway. They could be dropping off children.
  • If you're driving a group of children, but staying in the running vehicle at the curb, be sure to put on your hazard lights to alert other motorists.
  • And if you're driving to a Halloween party, put that mask on after you park the car.

Parents can help motorists, too:

  • Make sure drivers can see the children. Give them flashlights and glow sticks. Dress kids in bright, reflective clothing or use reflective tape on their costumes.
  • Use makeup, rather than masks, so children have a clear, unobstructed view of their surroundings.
  • Be sure children know how to cross a street -- look left, right and left again before crossing.
  • Instruct children to stay on sidewalks and to cross only at corners or crosswalks.
  • Accompany your children as they trick or treat.
