Halloween is one of the Most Dangerous Nights of the Year for Car Accidents

Posted By Atlanta Pain and Rehab || 14-Oct-2016

Halloween is a fun holiday for kids and adults alike, but it is also one of the most dangerous nights of the year for drivers and pedestrians. There is a significant increase in auto accidents on Halloween due to the amount of pedestrians out walking around in the dark and an increase in drunk driving. Unfortunately, child pedestrian injuries and deaths tend to spike on Halloween when careless or intoxicated drivers fail to be aware of their surroundings and drive in an alert and conscientious manner.

Follow these safety recommendations to help your children stay safe on Halloween:

  • Add glow sticks or reflective tape to your child’s costume to increase their visibility
  • Don’t let young children trick-or-treat alone
  • Stay on the sidewalk and avoid walking in the street
  • Use crosswalks where available and look both ways before crossing
  • Don’t enter the street from in between parked cars

If you have been involved in a car accident and have sustained a neck injury, shoulder injury, back injury, or soft tissue injury, contact Atlanta Pain & Rehab to make an appointment with an Atlanta personal injury chiropractor. We specialize in physical rehabilitation after auto accidents, and can even refer you to an attorney. Don’t wait too long to seek medical attention – even if you don’t immediately feel hurt, you may still be injured and are experiencing a delay in symptoms. To protect your health and your potential insurance claim, see one of our experienced chiropractors as soon as possible.

We hope that you have a fun and, above all, safe Halloween!
