Halloween is a wonderful holiday that both children and adults look forward to every year. From Halloween parties, to fall festivals, to costume contents, to pumpkin patches, to trick-or-treating, and more, there is certainly no shortage of fun activities for everyone to enjoy. Trick-or-treating is one the most fun festivities that children and families look forward to. While it's a wonderful way to enjoy the holiday, it is crucial to remain vigilant at all times as a driver and pedestrian to avoid an accident.
Unfortunately, Halloween has been one of the most fatal days of the year for pedestrians. Because there are more children trick-or-treating in the evenings, it leaves them more susceptible to accidents. This is why we strongly recommend that both drivers and the guardians of children trick-or-treating remain extremely vigilant for children darting into the road, walking through parking lots, and walking along the streets. There are various elements that contribute to trick-or-treating being inherently more dangerous than any other day, as it involves darkness, more pedestrian traffic, and many distractions.
In this blog, we will provide some safety tips for trick-or-treaters to practice this Halloween while out trick-or-treating.
