Changing leaves, pumpkins, and cool nights. It’s beginning to feel like Halloween. So it’s a great time for some Halloween Safety Tips and Information.
While Halloween is a fun evening of dress up, and candy, we should all remember that there are risks. Being outside in the dark, going house to house on strange streets, and an increase of pedestrians and children walking along the road creates potential for accidents.
For automobile drivers there are several things that can improve safety for everyone. AAA recommends always driving with your headlights on, taking extra care to watch for children in the street, and exiting driveways with caution.
Trick-or-treaters (pedestrians) should wear something reflective and carry a flashlight. Improving visibility will help motorists see you crossing the street or walking in a driveway. Always watch for cars, and cross in marked crossing areas. The littlest ghosts and goblins should always have an adult or responsible older sibling with them as they go door to door. Follow these Halloween Safety Tips and information for a safe and fun all hallows eve.
