With many colleges and universities across the state of Oklahoma, our personal injury attorneys have gathered some safety tips to ensure college students stay save during the Halloween festivities. Furthermore, by staying smart and making logical decisions, you can keep your college Halloween fun and safe for you and your friends.
Some college Halloween safety tips include:
Driving Before parking in any lot on a college campus, make sure there are no parking restrictions. It is also advised to lock all doors and never leave anything of value in the vehicle. Most importantly, never drink and drive!
Sleeping If you are staying with a friend, make sure to check first to see if they can have guests and get to know any roommates before spending the night.
Costumes If you are wearing a costume, make sure it does not include anything that could be confused with a real weapon. This could cause potential problems with others and also law enforcement officials in the area.
Alcohol It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to drink alcoholic beverages, while people should also never leave their drink unattended or accept a drink from someone they do not know.
Walking It is advised never to walk alone at night, and to travel in groups at all times.
Know your Surroundings if you are visiting a school, it is advised to get to know your surroundings and know where the nearest security office is.
Party If you go to a party and you do not know anyone there and the people seem unusual, other than the costumes, grab your friends and leave the party.
With the enormous amounts of arrests and injuries that occur each year on college campuses near Halloween, these guidelines may be able to assist you in avoiding any unfavorable results.
