Boo! Halloween Safety Tips to Keep Your Kids Safe

Halloween Safety Tips

Boo – happy Halloween from Amesbury Chevrolet!

Next to Christmas, Halloween is a child’s favorite time of the year due to the obscene amount of candy they collect and fun costumes they wear. There are quite a few precautions to take before letting your child collect sweets though. Here are a few Halloween safety tips.

  • Preparation – Have a talk with your child before leaving to go trick-or-treating. Remind them to always look both ways before crossing the street and to use crosswalks when available. Make sure their costume fits properly to avoid any injuries as a resulting of falling. Some masks can obscure vision, so use face paint or makeup instead when possible.
  • Collecting – Children under the age of 12 should always have an adult supervisor, especially when in large groups of people or unfamiliar neighborhoods. Supervisors would do well to attach a glow stick or flashlight to their children to make them easier to spot in larger crowds.
  • Driving – Driving on trick-or-treat night comes with a whole host of dangers that drivers have to avoid. Watch for kids walking near or in the street; make sure your lights are on so your vehicle is easily visible. Check when your area has trick-or-treat hours and avoid driving altogether between those hours if possible.
