Car Insurance: Safe-Driving Trips from GMAC

Auto Insurance and Safety Tips from GMAC

Automobile insurance and safety tips go hand-in-hand from Yorktown Heights Insurance Agency.  Check out GMAC’s five important tips for drivers who are heading out for tricks and treats on October 31st.  Be sure to practice vehicle safety.

According to Safe Kids USA, children are twice as likely to be killed by a vehicle on Halloween compared to other days of the year. Take extra caution behind the wheel on Halloween and use the following driving tips to keep trick-or-treaters safe.

  1. Yield to Trick-or-Treaters: Be prepared for children to run into the street at anytime.
  2. Refrain From Passing Idle Vehicles: You never know when the driver in front of you has stopped to drop children off. Be patient and take extra caution when traveling near other vehicles.
  3. Park Your Mobile Phone: With children crowding the dark roads, it is especially important to avoid any distractions while behind the wheel.
  4. Communicate With Other Drivers: Use hazard lights when picking-up or dropping-off trick-or-treaters. And, always use turn signals.
  5. Consider Alternate Routes: Avoid driving near trick-or-treaters by taking routes that go around busy neighborhoods, not through them.

Be sure you are well-protected with the right insurance, too!  We moved to 1928 Commerce St.  Fill out the online car insurance form and stop in to our new location!

Have a safe Halloween,
