It’s Halloween! Trick-or-treaters may be up for a fright, but probably not one that involves a car speeding through a residential neighborhood. If you are out on the roads tonight, slow down and take extra caution; there may be plenty of children out on the streets this evening looking to fill their plastic pumpkins with candy.
Parents, if you’re taking your children trick-or-treating this evening, consider adding something reflective to their costumes. This will make them more visible to drivers and help to prevent accidents. You could also ensure that your children have a full range of vision by not using masks that could make it more difficult to see cars on the road.
The CDC estimates that pedestrians are at four times the normal risk of being involved in a fatal crash on Halloween night. Be safe out there.
From all of us at the Law Offices of Scott Warmuth, have a safe and spooky Halloween!
