Your Hump-Day Recess: Halloween Drunk Driving Just Won’t Fly

From the Texas Department of Transportation, a Halloween message.


This year Halloween falls on a Friday night. With no work the next day, it will be as much a party night for adults as kids. That’s fun, but it also means that there are more chances to drink, and thus, more chances to drink and drive. If your Halloween haunts include places that serve alcohol, make sure you plan ahead.

  • Enlist a designated driver.
  • No designated driver? Take a taxi, or use public transportation (that includes your feet).
  • Watch out for pedestrians, including trick-or-treaters.

It’s not clear whether an ignition interlock could be installed on a broom. We’ll have to do some research on that. Meanwhile have fun on Halloween, and stay safe.
