Scare Safely on Halloween

Halloween is one of the most exciting days of the year for kids and many adults. However, millions of parents worry about their children's safety on Halloween for a variety of reasons. Halloween may be known to be the spookiest and scariest day of the year, and sometimes it can be for the wrong reasons. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween compared to any other day of the year. Here are several steps you can take to keep your family safe this Halloween:

Walking

  • Look before you cross the street
  • Younger trick-or-treaters should always be supervised
  • Use sidewalks and paths
  • Stay in well-lit areas


Costumes

  • Use reflective tape or stickers on costumes and bags to be visible to drivers
  • Do not let your child wear a mask, as it can get in the way of their vision
  • Make sure the costume fits properly to avoid tripping hazards


Driving

  • Drive cautiously and slowly
  • Eliminate any distractions like cell phones
  • Slow down and be alert in residential neighborhoods
  • Never drink and drive.
