GDOT asks drivers to be safe this Halloween

GDOT asks drivers to be safe this Halloween

ATLANTA -- Whether you're taking children trick-or-treating or simply trying to get home at the end of a long workday, the Georgia Department of Transportation wants you to be safe this Halloween.

GDOT is offering advice for both drivers and pedestrians as the streets fill with young ghosts and goblins this evening.

Drivers are asked to slow down when entering neighborhoods and school zones. Reduce the number of distractions in the car, like phones and music, and take an extra second to look for children on medians and curbs.

GDOT also recommends driving with headlights on; that makes it easier to spot children from far away.

Young trick-or-treaters should look left, right and left again while trying to cross the street. They should also always stay on sidewalks or paths, and should not dart into the road or try to cross it from between parked cars.

It is recommended that children wear reflective tape or apply it to their trick-or-treat bags.
