What Is the Scariest Part of Halloween?

Halloween Drinking and DrivingHalloween weekend and Halloween night on Monday will bring plenty of costumed fun to Charleston and the surrounding communities of South Carolina. However, one of the scariest dangers lurking in the shadows this weekend isn’t a horror movie villain. It’s drunk drivers.

Halloween is one of the deadliest nights of the year when it comes to impaired drivers. Around 44 percent of fatal accidents on Halloween are caused by drunk drivers, according to data the NHTSA collected from 2009-2013. The witching hours are the most dangerous. Between midnight and three in the morning, drunk drivers kill someone every 23 minutes.

This Halloween weekend, watch out for erratic drivers on the roadway, and make sure you have a plan to get home without driving if you are drinking. Whether you designate a sober driver, catch a ride with Uber, or use public transportation, you can help make it a safer Halloween by celebrating responsibly.
