Halloween Pedestrian Safety – Infographic
Halloween Pedestrian Safety
Halloween is the most dangerous night of the year for pedestrians. It’s true. More people are injured or killed on Halloween than any other time of the year. Sadly, this includes children too. Halloween pedestrian safety is a major concern. But, we’ve got tips to help you stay safe while collecting candy.
Halloween Costume Safety
Safety starts with a good costume. When choosing a Halloween costume, it is important to consider visibility. A costume in all black is not a good idea for walking the streets in the evening. Try to find an outfit in bright colors. Additionally, take a flashlight and consider adding reflective tape for improved visibility.
Costumes with masks should be avoided. A mask may block your vision and make it more difficult to see around you. Consider using makeup instead.
Trick Or Treat Walking Safety
When going door to door in search of candy, stay on the sidewalk. Always keep pedestrian safety in mind. Only cross the street at a crosswalk. Never assume a driver can see you, wait until the driver stops to let you cross. Always look both ways before and while crossing the street.
Choose a part of the neighborhood with lit streets and sidewalks. Walk on brightly lit streets. Don’t walk alone, trick or treat with others. Halloween pedestrian safety increases in larger groups. There is increased safety in numbers!
