Drivers should proceed with caution this Halloween

Local neighborhoods are going to be filled with excitement tonight when trick-or-treaters start roaming the streets in search of sweet treats.

This influx of activity means that there are more chances for pedestrian accidents to happen. During night time hours, accidents occur more often. It is recommended that motorists avoid taking shortcuts through residential neighborhoods during prime trick-or-treating hours. According to AAA, pedestrians are twice as likely to be killed if they are hit by a car going 35 miles per hour instead of 25 miles per hour. Drivers need to drive slow and be attentive to their surroundings.

Trick-or-treaters can take precautions too so as to avoid an accident. Children should have a mapped out plan of the route they are going to take as well as make sure it is sufficiently lit. Looking both ways before crossing a street takes no time at all and could prevent a serious accident.

Pedestrians can be seriously injured in pedestrian accidents. If you have been the victim of a pedestrian accident, please contact the Sheboygan pedestrian accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
