Reminder — there will be a lot of people walking the street on Halloween night.

Nearly every November 1st, I read about a child who was hit by an automobile and killed on Halloween night. I feel upset to read this news every year. I’m asking for people who are driving to drive extra slow this Halloween night and be extra cautious watching for children. I’d like to reinforce that it would be a real nightmare to accidentally harm a kid from driving on Halloween night, so Drive Extra Slow and Safe on Halloween night.

 

Here are the Ten (10) Halloween Safety Tips:

  1. Brush your teeth.  (always). This will help prevent cavities.
  2. Limit the amount of candy you eat. This will prevent you from getting sick.
  3. Look both ways before you cross the street. This will help you from getting hit by a car.
  4. Don’t text while walking across the street. This could prevent you from getting hit by a car.
  5. Stay with a group of people. Keep a trusted adult near. This will help keep you safe from strangers.
  6. Make sure you’re able to see if you’re wearing a mask. This could prevent falls and running into things.
  7. Wear comfortable shoes if you’re going to do a lot of walking on Halloween night. This will help prevent blisters or sore feet or tripping from wrong sized clown shoes.
  8. Be visible so you’ll be seen by cars. Use a flashlight, glow sticks, wear reflective tape and reflective stickers. This will help you from getting hit by a car.
  9. Be careful with make-up. It can cause allergic reactions for some people Be careful with make-up. It can cause allergic reactions for some people.
  10. Examine/ check all candy before you eat it. Make sure it has not been opened or tampered with. Don’t eat homemade treats from strangers. This will help you avoid eating something dangerous.
