Halloween can be especially dangerous when combined with drinking, for not only drivers, but also pedestrians.  The book “Superfreakonomics” (Leavitt, et al.) went into great detail why drinking and walking was actually more deadly under all statistics vs. drinking and driving.  According to the NHTSA’s most recent statistics on Halloween:

  • 50% of pedestrians die from a drunk driving accident (33% on an average day).

  • 28% of crash victim fatalities are  pedestrians (14% on an average day).

  • Approximately 20% of pedestrian fatalities on Halloween involve a drunk driver.

  • Over 50% of pedestrian fatalities occur between 4pm and midnight.

One statistic shows that when Halloween falls on a Saturday, like it does this year, probation violations from alcohol related cases jumps to 75%, vs. 17% on a regular year.

Here’s the DUI checkpoint in Orange County activity for this Halloween:

  • The City of Costa Mesa has a DUI checkpoint planned for tonight, October 30th.  A driver tipped us off that it is going strong tonight at Eastbound Harbor approaching Adams in Costa Mesa.
  • The City of Huntington Beach announced a DUI checkpoint planned for tonight, October 30th, 2015.
  • The City of Brea has  a DUI checkpoint planned for tonight, October 30th.
  • The City of Dana Point announced a DUI checkpoint planned for tonight, October 30th, 2015.
