Trick or Treating Safety Tips

Austin Trick or Treating Safety TipsHappy Halloween! While Halloween is a holiday intended for children to frolic in their best costumes and collect candy, there are increased dangers on this joyous day that must be considered. In order to keep your trick or treating memorable for the right reasons, we suggest keeping these vital safety tips in mind:

  • Costume is key in maintaining safety on this day. You do not want your child to be dressed in a long black witch’s dress that causes them to trip or be unseen by motorists on the road. Make sure their costume is not too long and if it is darkly colored, place reflective tape on the back.
  • It is a good idea to keep your cell phone on you in case of an emergency. However, do not let the phone become a distraction!
  • Looking both ways before crossing is extremely important. With the increased presence of intoxicated drivers on this holiday, this is a tip you must not forget.
