Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is a fun and exciting time for both children and adults alike! The holiday is typically spent trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, and attending parties.

But according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Halloween can be a dangerous time and result in an uptick of motor vehicle crashes. The reason is because of several factors like increased pedestrian traffic on Halloween, lower visibility due to costumes and masks and the amount of alcohol consumed by party goers.

The National Safety Council recommends the following safety tips for both trick-or-treaters and drivers:

  • Watch for children walking on roadways
  • Turn your headlights on early to spot trick-or-treaters
  • Remind kids to cross the street at crosswalks
  • Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights
  • Use reflective tape on costumes and wear light colors
