Light up the night.
Place fun lanterns in the shadows along the walkway, steps, and doorway. Battery operated lighting is a safe option. A well lit haunted house keeps everyone safe and brightens up the night.

Heads up.
Cell phones are important in case of an emergency, but can also become a distraction. Put electronic devices down and keep your head up. Instruct your child never to dart out in the street. Always watch for moving cars and never walk between parked cars.

Stay on the sidewalk.
When trick-or-treating, stay on the sidewalk.  If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic so drivers can see you.  On average twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween than any other day of the year.
