Halloween is just around the corner and with it comes annual warnings to trick or treaters about taking certain safety precautions for Halloween safety. These include checking your candy and other items for hidden objects and avoiding encounters with strangers on the street who offer candy if you will to come to their car or house.
There are also warnings for parents as well as trick and treaters regarding being on the lookout for cars. Parents often take their children to certain residential areas and either drop them off from house to house or slowly drive behind them while they ring doorbells. With many parents following this practice, traffic can build up endangering trick or treaters and other pedestrians. It can also panic drivers who may lose sight of their children or children who cannot find their parent’s car.
