Drive for Safety This Halloween


Did you know more pedestrians are struck by cars on Halloween than almost any other night of the year? If you didn't, you probably would have guessed – after all, what other night of the year do hundreds of children take to the streets after dark, dressed in dark costumes and hard-to-see-out-of masks?

Though many new Nissan vehicles are available with Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, which can sense pedestrians in the road and automatically brake, it's not always enough. If you are driving faster than 25 mph, the pedestrian-detection system will slow down the speed of impact, but not prevent it.

How can you keep kids safe while they're trick-or-treating in Davie?
  • Reduce your speed.
  • Look for kids on walkways and yards near the road and anticipate their movement.
  • If a child looks like they are about to enter the road, yield. Don't take chances.
  • Don't drink and drive.
