Stay safe this Halloween with West Kendall Toyota

October 20th, 2017 by

With costumes, parties, and of course trick-or-treating, Halloween is one of our favorite holidays to celebrate. And with only a few days until the 31st, we thought we’d share with you some basic safety tips to ensure you and your family have a fun and safe Halloween outing.

Use bright and reflective colors where possible.

Get creative with costumes and try and decorate them with reflective tape or stickers to help your kids be seen while trick or treating. You can also try and encourage them to dress up in costumes that requires lighter colors. Batman is super fun, but he’s also super dark. Maybe he’ll look better with a light saber? Or some nifty glow in the dark taping? You get the idea…

Take it slow and mind your surroundings.

Obviously there will be a ton of young trick-or-treaters roaming the neighborhood on Halloween eve, but they’ll also be roaming the streets too. And with various costumes and outfits that can often make it hard to see them, it’s best to take it slow and drive extra carefully around your neighborhood. And while you’re at it, maybe even drive around with some tasty treats to help further the festivities.

Trick Or treat with Toyota.

Speaking of treats, Toyota offers a ton of them with advanced safety features that come standard on more than 15 Toyota vehicles and counting.  We’re talking Lane Departure Alert and even a Pre-Collision System (PCS)1 with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)2 that helps mitigate or avoid a potential collision.

Have fun and stay safe this Halloween with West Kendall Toyota!
