Stay Seen this Halloween with Halloween Safety Tips

Posted by HiVis365 Team on

While Halloween is a time to make memories trick-or- treating, it is also one of the most dangerous times of the year for children walking. Approximately 41.1 million children will participate in trick-or-treat this year and being so, we must be ever so vigilant that we are doing all we can to keep our streets safe for our trick-or-treaters this Halloween. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 30% of those involved in fatal motor vehicle accidents on Halloween are pedestrians, nearly twice as much as on any other day of the year. 

We have compiled a list of resources to help keep trick-or-treaters safe this year and while it is no means exhaustive, we hope that it helps. Feel free to share and stay safe and be seen this Halloween!
