A Very Zebra Halloween

Halloween is a Big Deal here at The Zebra. We’re generally big on any occasion to decorate, dress in quirky costumes (no, we don’t all dress up like zebras… okay, maybe a few of us do), and consume outrageous amounts of sugar (which we’ll then sorely regret come on November 1). And as such fans, we’ve already written about Halloween from an auto angle a handful of times. Here’s a Happy Zebra Halloween Quoted Roundup for your Monday:

1. Top 10 Scary Movie Car Scenes

2. 5 Halloween Costume Ideas for Car Industry Fanatics

“Ex-Volkswagen Employee, a.k.a. The ‘too soon?’ costume. While it might be a little premature to laugh at the Volkswagen scandal, this costume was too topical to not include in our costume idea round-up. What you’ll need: Volkswagen shirt (bought or homemade) and a panhandling sign.”

Bumper stickers and the occasional Jesus (or Darwin) Fish decal are usually the extent of vehicle embellishments for most drivers. But some folks take accessorizing their cars to a visually jolting level. In the spirit of Halloween, we wanted to identify some outstanding car costumes, accessories, and art cars attracting the attention of drivers and – according to The Zebra’s own insurance expert Neil – insurers.”

4. This Statistic May Be the Scariest Thing About Halloween

“The scariest thing about Halloween, for parents and drivers alike, is that children are twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed than on any other day. For this reason, global non-profit Safe Kids has teamed up with FedEx to promote Halloween pedestrian safety. Together they have provided reflective materials to families in 159 U.S. cities and have compiled safe walking information for everyone who plans to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve.”
