Ghosts and goblins are taking over the road - and causing great concern for drivers.
Halloween is coming. Children are flocking to the streets, searching for candy and good times. They don’t spare thoughts for safety. They’re only interested in fun. Trying to maneuver through neighborhoods and rural roads can prove dangerous, however, and each year brings the possibility of an accident.
Key West Ford wants to avoid this. We now offer some helpful tips to improve visibility while trick-or-treating this year:
Wear White Clothing
Black may be Halloween’s signature color, but white is far better on the road. Drivers can spy a bright object up to 200 feet in advance - as opposed to a dark object at 20 feet.
Use Reflective Accessories
If a child’s costume must be dark, add reflective accents to the front and back. Consider arm bands, luminescent tape, glow-in-the-dark candy bags and more.
Walk In Pairs
Safety in numbers doesn’t just protect against things that go bump in the night. Instead it makes visibility far easier. Drivers are more likely to see groups than an individual. Pair up!
Use these tips to create a safe and fun Halloween environment.
