Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is a day that kids anticipate all year long. It’s an opportunity for them to dress up as their favorite characters and head door to door in search of candy. However, Halloween can be a more stressful holiday for parents.

Parents have the difficulty of deciding if their children are old enough to trick-or-treat without supervision, and if they’ll be safe doing so. This guide will help ensure that you and your kids stay safe on this exciting fall holiday.

Hit the Streets Safely

Walking on the streets at night can be dangerous, so it’s best to be  cautious at all times. Always cross the streets at corners, using crosswalks and traffic signals.

Advise your children that they should always look left, right and left again when crossing streets. Don’t let them use electronic devices, like cellular phones, while walking.

Walk on designated paths or sidewalks whenever possible, and if there are no paths, walk far off of the left side of the road facing traffic. Always carry a flashlight while trick-or-treating.

Should Your Child Be Accompanied?

It’s difficult to tell whether or not your child should be accompanied by an adult when trick-or-treating. However, Safe Kids Worldwide suggests that any children under the age of 12 should never be alone at night without supervision. If your child is old enough to trick-or-treat without supervision, make sure he or she travels with friends and stays in a familiar area.

Choose a Safe Costume

It’s no surprise that kids always want to have elaborate costumes, but it’s important to keep those costumes safe. Always decorate costumes with reflective tape on them and choose light colors whenever possible. Kids love carrying glow sticks, and they can be handy safety devices too.

Here at SouthTowne Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC, we want you to have a safe and reliable vehicle for your family too. Stop in and see us for an unbelievable deal on a brand-new, top-quality car, truck or SUV this fall.
