Halloween Safety Tips for 2018

October 18th, 2018 by

Halloween is right around the corner, which means a fun night for young children to dress in their spookiest outfits and go door-to-door for candy. To keep them safe, follow these Halloween safety tips.

If you are drivingโ€ฆ

  • Slow down in residential areas. Just because the speed limit is 25 miles an hour doesnโ€™t mean you donโ€™t need to keep an eye out for kids that are darting in and out of traffic.
  • Turn your headlights on. Fog lights can help you see farther to either side of your vehicle as well.
  • Be especially careful when entering and exiting driveways.
  • Expect children not to follow traffic and pedestrian laws. In other words, be ready at any moment for children to run out into the street.

If you are a parentโ€ฆ

  • Always make sure your children are accompanied by a trusted adult. Keep the ratio three kids to one adult at the most; any more kids makes it too difficult to safely monitor them.
  • If your children are old enough to go out on their own, set specific boundaries, like how many streets over they can go and what time they need to be home.
  • Never let your children eat any candy until you have checked it yourself.
  • Remind your kids never to go inside a strangerโ€™s house.
