Halloween Doesn’t Have to be a Dangerous Night for Children

 

Child pedestrian death rate on Halloween night doubles the average, FedEx and Safe Kids USA urges kids and drivers to be alert and cautious

Washington, D.C. – On a potentially dangerous night of the year for child pedestrians, Safe Kids USA urges parents to prepare children to act safely and drivers to take extra precautions.  On average, twice as many kids are killed while walking on Halloween compared to other days of the year.

“Kids need proper safety instruction before they go out trick-or-treating,” says Moira Donahue, Safe Kids USA Director of Pedestrian Safety Programs.  “Many kids will be out trick-or-treating while it is dark and thus more difficult for drivers to see them.  There are several simple and effective behaviors that parents can share with kids to help reduce their risk of injury.  For example, children younger than age 12 should not be alone crossing streets on this night without an adult.  If older kids are mature enough to go trick-or-treating without adult supervision, parents should make sure they go in a group and stick to a predetermined route with good lighting.”
