Halloween Walking Safety Tips
For children, Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year. There are many reasons for this, ranging from dressing up to trick or treating.
As a parent, it’s critical to share a variety of trick or treating walking safety tips with your children. Here are several that can go a long way in keeping them safe:
· Wear a bright light: Since trick or treating typically takes place in the dark, wearing a bright light makes it easier for passing vehicles to see your children.
· Cross at street corners: It’s easy for children to get so excited that they cross the street whenever and wherever they want. Since this increases the risk of an accident, talk about the importance of crossing at corners and use traffic signals to their advantage.
· Avoid distractions: Depending on the age of your children, distractions, such as a smartphone, should be left at home. Sending a text while walking on a busy street is a big safety risk.
· Always walk on sidewalks: When available, your children should use sidewalks and other pathways that aren’t on the road.
Halloween is a fun time for children of all ages. With these walking safety tips, you can do your part in keeping your children safe during trick or treating this year.
