Avoid Halloween Hazards

posted by Suzanne And Greg In The Morning - 

According to the National Safety Council, Halloween can be a pretty dangerous evening, with 107 people killed on the roads last Halloween, and 21% of that number being pedestrians. Such fatalities tend to spike during Halloween not only because of increased pedestrian traffic, but due to things like lower visibility from costumes, alcohol consumption and shorter daylight hours.

To protect against such dangers, the NSC has come out with a list of tips for both drivers and trick or treaters, so you’ll want to listen up so everyone stays safe tonight. Tips include:

  • Avoid masks, which can obstruct vision
  • A responsible adult should accompany young children
  • All pedestrians should keep heads up and avoid running across the street
  • Keep trick-or-treaters visible with reflective tape or glow sticks on costumes and bags
  • Watch for children, and enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully
  • Always driving attentively and disconnect from your cell phone, even hands-free
  • Designate an alcohol and drug-free driver or arrange alternate transportation
  • Discourage new, inexperienced drivers from driving on Halloween
