Decoding Halloween driving dangers

AAA has a few warnings for San Francisco partygoers who are out on Halloween night. There are often a few spooks that can be found on the road during Halloween, and they're usually in the form of drunk drivers. The hours of 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. are considered the most dangerous times to be on the road on Halloween night. National statistics reveal that about 44 percent of accidents that occur during this time period involve someone who has been drinking and driving.

While the holiday can also be dangerous for trick-or-treaters, there were actually no pedestrians killed on Halloween in 2016. This indicates that people walking are much safer than drivers and passengers. There are a few safety tips that AAA has suggested to help keep drivers and pedestrians safe while having fun going from house to house.

For starters, adult partiers should have a designated driver or access to some type of public or ride-sharing transportation. Friends who see that someone has been drinking shouldn't be afraid to take the keys. While on the road, drivers should watch for children who could still be on the sidewalks late at night. Slower speeds can help increase reaction time. Costumes with bright colors are easier to see while walking on the sidewalks and along the sides of roadways.

Whether involved in an accident with a pedestrian or another vehicle, an attorney representing those involved in motor vehicle accidents can offer assistance. Any information about drinking and driving should be given to the attorney. Details of the crash can be examined to determine who was at fault. This information will also help lead to a settlement.
