Halloween Safety Tips
I often focus on all the fun parts of fall that I don’t think about the dangers of Halloween. This morning I was reading a bunch of articles in the EveryParent App. I was so upset to read that the number of children killed while walking on Halloween from 4-10pm is twice as many, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study. Learning this fact inspired me to share these Halloween safety tips. They are equally important for both parents and anyone driving on Halloween.
Halloween Safety Tips for Parents
- Travel in groups and make sure there is an adult with kids under the age of 12.
- • Walk on sidewalks or facing traffic as far away from the street if there is no sidewalk.
- It is tempting to zig zag down the street while trick or treating, but it is safer to only cross at corners.
Halloween Safety for Costumes
- Opt for lighter-colored costumes s they are easier to see at night.
- Help light up your child with glow sticks, flashlights or wearing reflective tape or slap bands.
- Check the length of kids costumes to eliminate tripping hazards.
- Masks make it more different to see. If possible use face paint of makeup instead of a mask.
- Be careful that costume props are not sharp.
Halloween Safety Tips for Drivers
- Use your headlights on earlier in the day.
- Drive slow in residential neighborhoods, especially around driveways.
- Just because you see kids in the street does not mean they see you.
- Eliminate any distractions while driving, especially your phone.
