Car vandalism is neither a trick nor a treat, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that it's just as much an after effect of Halloween as candy-induced stomach aches and throwing away rotting jack-o'-lanterns. According to IIHS data, cars are, on average, twice as likely to be vandalized on October 31 – sometimes even with slashed tires and broken windows.
Toyota Prius owners aren't bad folks. With a few exceptions, they're just normal people who appreciate the comfortable, high-mileage hybrid. Someone in Arlington, Virginia doesn't see it that way, though, as 14 examples (and one Smart) had at least one tire slashed last Sunday night.
