Make Safety Top Priority In Halloween PreparationsSalem-News.com
With Halloween just around the corner, parents are reminded to be extra careful if their children will be trick-or-treating in neighborhood streets.
(SALEM) - “Pedestrian traffic fatalities are a great risk for children everyday, and during Halloween, the threat increases four-fold,” said AAA Oregon Public Affairs Director Elliott Eki. “Some Halloween masks and costumes make it difficult for children to see and to be seen, so parents must focus on safety when preparing their ghosts and goblins for trick-or-treating.”
Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, October 29th, so night skies will darken an hour earlier. Darkness, the increased number of children on the streets and motorists can create a dangerous combination. To help reduce risks for young pedestrians, AAA suggests these basic Halloween safety tips for motorists, parents and trick-or-treaters.
For more than 20 years, AAA has distributed thousands of AAA Halloween Safety treat-bags, bookmarks and other items across North America as an effort to spread safety awareness. Visit your local AAA Oregon Service Center to pick up these items for your children during their fun and safe Halloween.
