Enjoy a Fun and Safe Halloween With These Driving Tips

Our Southgate Lincoln team shares a goal to help drivers and pedestrians stay safe in Southgate, MI. Halloween is a fun holiday, but it can also be dangerous.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, a child is four times more likely to get hit by a vehicle on Halloween than any other day of the year, which is why we have provided you with a few useful tips to help keep you and those around you safe this Halloween. Avoid distractions when you're driving, which include using your cell phone, adjusting the radio, and reaching for objects. When you're driving distracted, your chances of an accident increase significantly. It's also helpful to drive about 5 mph slower than the speed limit and obey all traffic signals and signs when you're going through residential areas.

Be mindful of children on sidewalks, medians, and curbs. If you turn your headlights on during the day, then it will be easier for you to be seen by pedestrians.
