Obviously, this is the best month for this observance, because it's time for Halloween celebrations! Contrary to urban legends, the biggest safety concern for Halloween is not poisoned or razor blade-ridden candies, it's cars. Whether you're behind the wheel or out trick-or-treating, things can get dangerous out there. For drivers, please take care when driving in residential neighborhoods. Even in the daylight, be sure to pay attention to the road, speed limit, and crossings.
Trick-or-treaters should have some sort of reflective material on their costume, shoes, or bag. Be sure to stay with an adult, and keep costumes creative but safe. Masks can be dangerous for young ones and prevent proper breathing and eyesight, and cloaks or dresses that drag on the ground are tripping hazards. Be safe out there!More treats, less tricks!
