(KHBT) — On the Trick-or-Treat trail?
As a parent or caregiver, there are a few important things you can do to protect your trick-or-treaters on the Halloween trail.
- Light the way. Bring glow sticks or a flashlight with extra batteries so your trick-or-treater can see (and be seen) in the dark.
- Be visible. Put reflective tape on clothes, costumes, and trick-or-treat bags so your trick-or-treater can be seen by passing motorists.
- Use the crosswalk. Cross the street at a crosswalk or intersection. Never cross the street from between parked cars and don’t assume you have the right-of-way.
- Stay on the sidewalk. If available, use the sidewalk. Otherwise walk on the shoulder facing traffic.
- Pay attention. Distracted walking can be as hazardous as distracted driving so watch where you are going.
- Review traffic safety. Talk to your trick-or-treater about basic traffic laws before leaving the house.
