Car Accident Lawyers Offer Tips for a Safe & Spooky Halloween, Charlotte, North Carolina

From towering ghosts to tiny ghouls, Halloween night is full of fun for children and adults alike. However, all the extra excitement also may pose additional safety hazards for both drivers and trick-or-treaters. To ensure everyone stays safe this Halloween, the friendly car accident lawyers from Nagle & Associates, PA, have a few key tips to keep in mind. Based in Winston-Salem, Raleigh, Greensboro, Hickory, Wilmington, Asheville, and Charlotte, NC, the caring team wants to help keep their valued communities safe this holiday.

5 Halloween Tips for Parents & Drivers

1. Keep Children off the Road

In a flurry of excitement, many young trick-or-treaters may want to run across the street to flit from house to house. While you understandably don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun, children should remain on the sidewalk at all times to avoid accidents.

2. Bring a Flashlight

Sometimes, street lamps simply aren’t enough. To improve visibility while trick-or-treating, carry a flashlight. Cars will be able to see you better, which will help prevent accidents. You may also want to outfit your children in glow sticks and reflectors. 

3. Do Not Drink & Drive

4. Keep Your Eyes on the Road

Drivers may become easily distracted by the variety of witches, superheroes, and other costumed pedestrians outside the window. As a pedestrian, pay careful attention to cars, even when they’re slow-moving. If you’re driving on Halloween, keep your eyes on the road no matter what.

5. Take Extra Precautions in Residential Areas

Residential areas will be swarming with children on Halloween, so whether you’re heading to the store or driving home, practice immense caution. Drive slower than usual and keep your eyes peeled. Children and teens may very well be in the middle of the road, even if you’re not in a suburban development.
