Driving Safely is the Trick, to make each Journey a safer treat!

Halloween is a time for ghosts and ghouls, witches and pumpkins. A time for fun, tricks, pranks and sweet treats. A time where skeletons and vampires roam the streets and candle lit lanterns light the way.


Sunday evening will see children and parents out trick or treating, walking from house to house dressed up in terrifying costumes; and unlike last year, families and friends can enjoy coming together to enjoy all things spooky and creepy.


The only things that should be flying tomorrow evening are the witches on their broomsticks!


The little things can make a big difference to your own safety and the safety of others on our roads:


  • Drive within the legal speed limits
  • Wear your seatbelt on every journey, no matter how short or familiar
  • Don’t use or look at your mobile phone when driving
  • Be aware of your surroundings, and expect the unexpected
  • Give a safe distance of at least 1.5m between your vehicle when overtaking a cyclist or a horse rider
  • Think about your behaviour and how the choices you make on the road can impact your safety and the safety of others on the road


This Halloween, remember that driving safely is the trick to make each journey a safer treat; and if we all play our part, our roads will be safe for everyone. So, keep safe and enjoy the tricking and treating… Happy Halloween!
