Keep Halloween Haunts Safe: Schaumburg PD’s Crucial Advice for Sober Celebrations


Share post:

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – The Schaumburg Police Department is sounding the alarm for motorists to prioritize sobriety as Halloween approaches, especially on the eve of October 31 when young trick-or-treaters will be out in full force. 

Authorities emphasize the importance of planning a safe route home before attending any celebrations. They recommend enlisting a sober driver, using public transportation, or turning to a ride-sharing app. 

Just as dangerous as driving under the influence is walking while impaired; having a sober friend accompany you is key. If an impaired driver is spotted, the department advises contacting them once it’s safe. And for those who come across someone intoxicated and about to drive, the message is clear: take their keys and ensure they get home safely.
