Five ways to stay safe this Halloween

Don’t let danger spoil your Halloween! According to the National Safety Council, “Children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car or killed on Halloween than any other day of the year.” To ensure a safe holiday, here’s five ways you can stay safe and spooky this Halloween.

Plan your haunt

Know what neighborhoods and streets your crew are going to travel. Keep to sidewalks. If there is not a sidewalk, walk on the side of the road facing traffic.
