There are plenty of articles out there to help you keep your kids safe on Halloween night, but as adults, we don't always think about our safety. Every Halloween as we make plans, we need to remember to take steps to ensure our evening runs smoothly. Check out these tips for a safe and fun Halloween celebration:
If you are having a party — For many people, Halloween is the best night of the year to throw a costume party. Before sending out invitations, have a friend walk around your home to look for anything that might pose a danger to your guests. Make sure walkways are free from debris and well-lit for party goers and trick-or-treaters. Contact your homeowner's insurer to see what your policy covers and that you have the coverage you need. AAA offers an array of homeowner's policies, as well as knowledgeable people who understand your unique needs. Visit AAA Insurance to learn more.
Make sure your car is ready — If you'd rather head out on the town to celebrate, keep yourself safe by making sure your car is in tip-top shape so that you don't get stranded beside a graveyard at midnight! Before taking your friends in your car, it is important to know that your vehicle will reliably get them home. Visit your local AAA Car Care location for all of your vehicle maintenance needs, including battery checks. AAA offers premium batteries with the best service in the business.
If you celebrate with alcohol — If drinking alcohol, do so in moderation so that you can make good decisions and enjoy your night out responsibly. Accepting drinks from strangers is never a good idea. If someone gives you a drink, hold it in your hand for a few minutes until you can discreetly leave it at a table or the bar. If you have had a few drinks, tap a button and get a ride with Uber. AAA members receive a free first ride!
The easiest and best way to always be protected is to take your AAA membership card with you wherever you go. You can quickly make sure your AAA membership is up to date so someone can rescue you if your Halloween goes awry. You can check online or call 1-866-593-8626 to learn more. Whether you are adventurous or a homebody, AAA has you covered!
