Keep your children safe from pedestrian accidents this Halloween

It may seem a bit early to talk about Halloween safety, but you can never be too careful when it comes to keeping your children from harm. If you take time to learn about the most common dangers children face during Halloween and teach them how to be safe, you may avoid a tragedy during what should be a fun, spooky night. Our team at McCoy & McCoy is hopeful that your family will have a safe time trick-or-treating with your children in Hartford this year.

According to the National Safety Council, the top danger that children face on Halloween is not candy that has been tampered with, as many parents believe. Pedestrian accidents, instead, seriously injure or take the lives of many children across the country during this time of year. If you are driving on Halloween, it is important that you stay aware of your surroundings at all times. Watch out for children who might dart suddenly into the street or cross against the light. Be especially careful near curbs and driveways, and drive slowly in neighborhoods.

Before your children go trick-or-treating, remind them how to cross the street safely and to walk, not run. Make sure they have a flashlight or glow stick to alert drivers of their presence. Go trick-or-treating with younger children or send them with an older child or adult you know is responsible. You may learn more about common dangers while walking during Halloween and other times of the year by visiting our pedestrian accident page.
