Don’t get hit….

On Halloween kids are twice as likely to get hit by a car than any other night of the year! Kids are very excited (hopped up on sugar) and may be unpredictable.

Remember these tips brought to you by Safe Kids Worldwide:

  1. Use sidewalks.
  2. Look both ways and use your cross walks when crossing the street.
  3. Decorate your costumes with reflective stickers and carry glow sticks or flash lights.
  4. Face paint is a safer option than masks for visibility of trip hazards or cars.
  5. Don’t text message and walk.
  6. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing streets.
  7. Hold the hands of little ones.
  8. Educate before Tick or Treating about safety.

To drivers on Halloween:

  1. Drive slow.
  2. Do not use phones while driving. (And it’s illegal anyway.)
  3. Be on the lookout for smaller pedestrians.
  4. Remember kids may dart out in the road between cars.
  5. Kids can be unpredictable.

I want to leave you with this hilarious Pre-Teen One Direction Parody to remind you…..”its not har..arard…. not getting hit by a car!!”

In health,

P.S. Don’t forget to brush those teeth really well at the end of night!!
