Halloween can be a spooky time of year, and most of the ghosts and ghouls of the holiday tend to be aimed at offering a fun fright for kid. Of course, adults have their own little troubles to be scared of. Fortunately, there’s no need to be afraid of dirty oil when you can always come in for a quick and easy oil change at our Acura service center serving DC.
This is an especially good idea as Halloween is the first of many coming holidays, and holidays tend to mean lots of travel for busy drivers. Halloween, though, tends to call primarily for travel on foot. Your sneakers don’t need an oil change, but our DC area Acura dealership has still got some tips to help you and the little ones stay safe and happy while trick-or-treating!
Winging it might sound like fun, but taking the time to plan a route that covers the neighborhood without doubling back or wasting time can help you make the most of the time before the kids start to tucker out. You can also take the time to drive your route at night beforehand to make sure things are well lit along the way.
On a similar note, be sure to factor the walking that comes with trick-or-treating into your child’s costume. If you can’t find comfortable shoes that fit the bill, it’s a good idea to snap a few photos in costume footgear before switching children into more comfortable shoes for walking the neighborhood.
Speaking of costumes, it’s important to consider visibility. Flashlights, glow sticks, and reflective tape can all help kids to stay visible and prevent accidents. If black is a critical component of the costume, don’t worry; you can get black reflective tape for the best of both worlds!
Wherever you’re headed, taking time to prepare beforehand is the best way to stay safe and avoid unwelcome surprises—just like car maintenance!
