Before you head out on Halloween, have the New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire make sure your tires and brakes are in good working order.
It's Halloween, a day when kids and adults take delight in being scary. Although it's all in fun, there are some scary facts to consider - like these factoids from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
"In 2011, an estimated 69,000 pedestrians were injured, 11,000 of those injured were age 14 and younger, and males accounted for 65 percent (7,000) of those 11,000 injured."
"Bicyclists accounted for 2 percent of all traffic deaths and 2 percent of all crash-related injuries in 2014. "
Those are important statistics any day of the year, but especially so on Halloween when lots of kids are out trick or treating. And, we all know about kids - they start having fun and they stop thinking. So, they're not going to be watching where they're going or taking care. They're going to be darting here, there and everywhere. Like the road in front of you.
To help avoid tragedies, drivers need to be especially aware today and tonight. But drivers also need to make sure their cars are in good shape. Bad tires or bad brakes can make it hard to quickly stop and avoid that witch, ghost, or zombie that suddenly pops up in front of you.
