When the sun goes down and sky turns black, the real thrills and chills of Halloween begin. I love a good scare and that’s why I pay people to scare me… at haunted houses.
On the other hand, I hate a bad scare – like a car almost running over your child while trick-or-treating because his dark-colored costume made him hard to see. Halloween is supposed to be scary, but the thought of something like that happening to my child is terrifying and sends chills up my spine!
According to SafeKids.org, children on average are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.
Let’s be realistic, kids won’t be the ones to think about their own safety on Halloween night, so it’s up to us adults to make sure they stay visible to cars as they walk up and down the neighborhood streets trick-or-treating.
Parents and family members can make sure this happens with this thoughtful gift idea for Halloween – Safety LED Lights that blink and come in different colors and shapes so kids will think it’s cool and fun to wear.
