Common-Sense Safety Tips for Neighborhood Trick-or-Treating

Halloween is a favorite holiday among kids and parents across the nation. The night provides people the chance to dress up and express themselves, and everyone gets to enjoy candy and other fun treats!

When taking your kids trick-or-treating this Halloween, be sure to take your children to neighborhoods you are familiar with, are well lit by streetlamps and have well-cared-for sidewalks. Young kids should never go trick-or-treating alone and should never walk in the roadway. Also, look both ways before crossing the road, even if it's not a heavily-traveled street. Make sure that costumes are bright and can be easily seen by passing motorists. When you get home, don't allow your kids to eat their candy until you have thoroughly inspected it for safety, and be sure to grab a piece for yourself!
