Trick-or-Treat Safety Tips from the CDC

Trick-or-TreatWith Autumn comes so many wonderful things: drinking apple cider until your belly hurts, pumpkin carving, road trips to admire the foliage, “sweater weather,” and of course trick-or-treating.

The latter often sees kids at their most excited. They get to dress up and be a character, hang out with friends, and, best of all, collect massive amounts of candy. Everyone loves trick-or-treating but it’s important to maintain safety.

Our friends at the CDC took some time to put together some helpful Trick-or-Treat safety tips:

  • Remember that you and your children are sharing the road with cars at night. Make sure they know to walk and never run. Consider giving them a flashlight and placing reflective tape on their shoes or bag.
  • Make sure their costumes are safe. That means ensuring that they can still see through their masks and that they can walk unimpeded.
  • Unless you know the person, it is ill-advised to eat homemade treats. Stick to factory-wrapped candy.
  • Try to limit your child’s candy consumption. Make it into a lesson in self-restraint and the dangers of addiction.

Like anything else, staying safe is important but so is having fun. Don’t forget to encourage your kids to have the maximum fun possible!




Details on the Rockstar Performance Garage Hyundai Tucson

We’ve come to know the Hyundai Tucson to be a lot of things. Fuel efficient, safe, tech-savvy—all of these clearly describe the CUV.

We also know the Tucson to exhibit a high degree of versatility, but Rockstar Performance Garage (RPG) recently took the Tucson to an entirely new level. The SEMA conference is coming up and an RPG-modified Tucson will be part of Hyundai’s presentation.

Nic Ashby, owner and general partner of Rockstar Performance Garage, explained in a press release what he and his team’s goal was with the Tucson. “The focus behind this build was to create an off-roader that nobody expected.” The Tucson proved to be a great canvas for their work, explains Ashby, because the CUV featured a “rigid frame” and had “plenty of room in the engine bay.”

The modifications for the Rockstar Performance Garage Hyundai Tucson include:

  • Turbonetics Godzilla Blow Off Valve
  • 32-inch MTZ P3 tires
  • Fully-custom, adjustable shocks and struts system from King Shocks
  • High-flow Magnaflow exhaust
  • Smoked rear tail lights
  • Custom off road bumpers
  • King Shocks 2.5-inch Adjustable Strut Coilovers
