HALLOWEEN SAFETY CHECKLIST
Kids love the magic of Halloween: Trick-or-treating, classroom parties and trips to a neighborhood haunted house. But for moms and dads, often there is a fine line between Halloween fun and safety concerns.
Here’s a scary statistic: According to Injury Facts, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.
NSC offers these safety tips for parents – and anyone who plans to be on the road during trick-or-treat hours:
- Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs
- Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully
- At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing
- Discourage new, inexperienced drivers from driving on Halloween
