Avoid A Halloween Scare With These Tips

Halloween is among us – the one day of the year children are allowed to roam the streets dressed in their favorite disguises, scavenging for candy. An exciting time for kids could become a scary time for parents. Here are a few tips to keep the whole family safe this Halloween:



  • Texting and walking can be even more dangerous while crossing the street.
  • Add reflective materials on your child’s costume such as tape or stickers.
  • Have a flashlight handy.
  • Correct sizing on children’s costume is important to avoid any potential trip and falls.
  • Eat only sealed candy. Homemade treats can be hazardous.
  • All children under 12 should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Teach your children to never enter a stranger’s home. Instead, wait for the treats at the doorstep.

“Only 18% of parents use reflective tape on their children’s Halloween costumes.”

Driving on Halloween

  • Keep your phones down and your eyes on the road at all times. It’s especially important to be watchful for treat-or-treaters crossing the street.
  • Adults can have fun too. Make sure your costume isn’t on while driving. Big shoes and masks should be worn after you arrive at your destination.
  • Enter and exit driveways slowly.
  • Peak trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.


“On average, twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween compared to other days of the year.”
