Halloween is just around the corner – this spooky holiday is just two days away, and we’re sure that local trick-or-treaters and revelers are gearing up for a big night of celebration and candy! However, even if you’re not going to be celebrating, you should still be aware of a couple of things when you get behind the wheel of your new Toyota in Orlando. Our Toyota dealership in Central Florida has tips on how you can safely tackle the streets on Halloween night!
Drive carefully on Halloween in your Orlando Toyota
First of all, you should always drive carefully when you’re in the driver’s seat of your Orlando Toyota, but Halloween night especially! Pedestrian traffic will be heavy, so be sure you drive slowly, use your blinkers to indicate your movements, and always double check your blind spots. You should also be sure to be extra cautious if you’re pulling out of a driveway or alley, and be mindful of pedestrians crossing at crosswalks or four-way stops!
Make sure your new Toyota is well-equipped for the road
Driving behavior is just one way of making sure your Halloween is extra safe this year, however. You should also ensure that your new Toyota in Orlando is in excellent running condition, especially when it comes to elements like your headlights, turn indicators, taillights, brakes, and windshield wipers! Our Toyota Service Center in Orlando can help you check all of these parts and replace or repair anything that’s not up to par, but you can also check yourself for quality at home before the big night!
- Headlights, turn indicators, and taillights: This is one obvious – not only do you want your new Toyota in Orlando and its movements to be visible to other drivers and pedestrians that are out and about, you also want to be able to see clearly, especially once night falls. Make sure your headlights are working and are bright enough to illuminate your path efficiently. We offer headlight restoration services if yours aren’t functioning fully!
- Brakes: No matter how careful you are when you’re behind the wheel of your new Toyota, you still have to deal with other drivers and pedestrians who might not be as aware as you are. Make sure your brakes are responsive and working in top notch condition – we offer affordable brake service if you’re not satisfied with their performance.
- Wipers: It doesn’t look like rain this year for Halloween in Central Florida, but you can never be too sure! Your windshield wipers are essential for keeping your visibility high, so make sure they’re working properly. If they’re smearing water around rather than clearing a field of vision, you need new wiper blades. We can help!
Also, remember – keep your trick-or-treaters safe! You can fasten reflective tape to costumes to make trick-or-treaters more visible to drivers, as well as carry flashlights and keep to the sidewalks. Remind your ghosts and goblins to always look before crossing the street, and to avoid walking in the road where possible, using crosswalks instead!
