Happy Halloween, witches

Have a hellish halloween

Hear that? That's the sound of already overexcited children getting hyped up about Halloween.

Whether you love to take part or not, it's the first big night out of the winter season, so you need to keep a careful eye out for littl'ns AND big'ns running about.

What's lurking out there?

Kiddies stopping in the middle of the street to count how many packets of Starmix they've got. Drunk teenagers loitering in shadows. People driving home when they should have called a taxi.

Halloween falling on a Saturday night promises an even more rowdy affair than usual. Just make sure it doesn't turn into a horror show for you.

Be a hero, not a villain

If you're driving, you're not drinking - right? But other people might be, because other people can be very stupid. You can't change what they're doing but you can change how it affects you. Be prepared for someone to do something unexpected.

It's your job as a driver to make sure you're safe AND other people on the road are safe, so stick to the speed limits, use your lights properly and take it very easy through residential areas and town centres.
