These Halloween safety tips for walkers and drivers will help your avoid frightening accidents.
Twice as many children are hit while walking on Halloween than any other day of the year. Tricia Morrow, a Chevrolet Strategy Engineer, says drivers should drive scary slow and pay attention to the road.
"100% attention to the primary task of driving," says Morrow. "No cellphones."
Drivers should also take off masks, lashes or anything that could impede driving.
"That also goes for angel wings or big, bulky costumes," says Morrow. "If you have a cute costume, save it for your destination."
Remind your trick-or-treaters to stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. Remember reflective tape for costumes and carry a cellphone for quick communication.
