The month of October is known as a time of masks, costumes, candy, and sadly also vehicle accidents. Paintless dent repair technicians seem to get interesting calls about damages in need of repair from prankster kids throwing rocks to annoyed parents driving to the next trick-or-treat locations. So here are B&D’s driving tips for PDR jobs in October.
Drive cautiously and don’t pass stopped cars
A stopped car might be dropping off children that are in your blind spots or hard to see. A sudden move to pass the car could cause a fatality. No paintless dent removal job is more important than safety. Remain calm in the traffic and in children candy chaos.
Watch for children and yield to young pedestrians
Sudden deaths can occur when not paying attention to your surroundings. Sudden darting kids and young pedestrians need extra caution because they are still learning street safety.
Put down the phone
