Read These Halloween Safety Tips Before October 31st

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — we’re talking about Halloween, of course. And as fun as this holiday can be (for kids and adults), it is important that we prioritize safety, as drivers and as parents. Check out these Halloween safety tips before Oct. 31 and ensure that everyone has a happy All Hallows Eve:

Halloween Trick or Treating 

If You are a Parent

·         Make sure a trusted adult accompanies young children when trick-or-treating. Because it is dark and there are a lot of people out, your best bet is a ratio of three kids to one adult, maximum.

·         Set boundaries, like locations and curfews, for older children out trick-or-treating by themselves or going to parties. If you have a high schooler or college student, talk about the dangers of drinking underage and of drinking and driving.

·         Test all candy to make sure it hasn’t been tampered with, before letting your children eat it.

If You are a Driver

·         Slow down! Children are not predictable pedestrians, and they will be all over residential areas. Expect them to run out into the street at any moment.

·         Be especially careful when pulling into or backing out of driveways, as kids and parents will be all over the sidewalks.

·         Turn your headlights on and turn your music down. Increased visibility and focus will be crucial.

The team at Shenango Honda wishes you and yours a most joyous — and if you’re out hunting candy, lucrative — Halloween.
