Halloween is a fun day for children and it can also be fun for their parents. Kids can dress up and go around their neighborhood for treats. However, walking around the streets at night can be dangerous, especially if you're wearing dark colors. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind:
Practicing personal safety and awareness is also a good idea while walking around at night. If you're supervising a group of kids, make sure to do a head count every few minutes. If you see a suspicious car, make a note of it and if you feel that something really isn't right, take its license plate down.
Not taking kids around the neighborhood?
Even if you are not trick-or-treating, practicing safety while driving around trick-or-treaters is just as important. Be aware or your surroundings and drive slower than the speed limit in residential areas. Remember that kids may be playing while walking around.
