Happy Halloween! Stay Safe on the Roads!

From all of us at the Law Offices of Scott Warmuth, have a fun and safe Halloween! According to the Centers for Disease Control, children have about a 300% increased risk of being involved in a fatal pedestrian crash on Halloween when compared to other nights. To stay safe, we recommend following some common sense safety guidelines.

Drivers: Stay Alert
There are many more children on the roadways, driveways, and sidewalks then you are used to seeing, especially in residential neighborhoods.

Drivers: Slow Down!
Improve reaction your reaction time by slowing down to at maximum 5 mph BELOW the posted speed limit.

Trick-or-Treaters: Wear Reflective Clothing
When preparing children to walk around a dark neighborhood, the best defense is to ensure they’re visible. Reflective clothing will warn vehicles that they are present. You could also put reflective tape on candy bags.

Trick-or-Treaters: Avoid Sight-reducing Masks
Not being able to see oncoming traffic can lead to accidents. Ensure that costumed children can see out of any masks without obstruction.

Happy Halloween!
