Trick-or-treaters aren’t the only thing you have to contend with on Halloween. Mischievous acts and vandalism are common during this time of year, which means your personal property could be at risk.
“In general, on Halloween, more incidents occur, whether it involves throwing eggs or smearing windows with shaving cream,” says Christopher Wukovits, manager at AAA New York Insurance Services. The denser the population, the more trickery is apt to happen, he says.
Since egging cars is a rite of passage for many teenagers on Halloween, try to keep your vehicle off the street or covered with a tarp.. Expensive cars are particularly prone to egg attacks, according to Moore. “This is definitely the time of year to put it in the garage,” he says.
Even the most careful property owners can wind up being the victim of Halloween pranks. However, certain types of CT homeowners insurance and auto insurance typically cover such damages.
