October is finally here, which means the kids are gearing up for one of the busiest nights of the year. Trick-or-treat night brings out hundreds of kids and parents in some neighborhoods, which means there are a few precautions to take before you head out. Here are a several great Halloween safety tips from us at Stalker Chevrolet.
- Costumes – One of the major ways for a child to injury themselves is by falling. That’s why parents should make sure their child’s costume fits perfectly. Masks can also obstruct a child’s vision, which isn’t a good thing, especially in the dark. Use face paint or makeup when possible. Add a glow stick to your child’s costume to make them easier to spot.
- Supervising – Children under the age of 12 need to be supervised by an adult. Those older than 12 should stay in lit areas they’re familiar with to avoid injury or danger. In these cases, large groups are a parent’s friend.
- Driving – Drivers, you have an obligation this Halloween as well. Slow down, keep your lights on, and watch for any wandering children. See what times your area has trick-or-treat and do your best to stay off the road during those hours. Remember to stay off your phone while behind the wheel as well!
