With Halloween coming up this evening, the organization AAA is offering various safety tips to stay safe during a busy night of spooky fun.


According to AAA, Halloween night is a time when motorists need to be extra vigilant on the roads, as the majority of pedestrian fatalities on Halloween occur after 6 PM and outside of marked crosswalks. New York State Police will also be out in force during the event cracking down on impaired driving.

Additionally, vandalism is a concern during Halloween as both automobile and property damage tend to spike on Halloween night. AAA urges drivers to park in well-lit areas or in a garage, and to keep cars locked and homes lit to deter any potential vandals. 

AAA also says to drive slowly and be on the lookout for creatures or trick-or-treaters that can come out of nowhere, to use reflective tape on costumes and treat buckets to improve visibility at night, and if you’re throwing a Halloween party to stop serving alcohol at least an hour before the party ends.
