Now that you know about safe costumes, it’s important also to focus on safety while trick or treating. The Center for Disease Control issued these tips:
(1) Reflective Material
Attach reflective material to your costume or bag so that drivers will be able to see you.
Carry a flashlight so that you can see others and others can see you. This will also help you avoid tripping over uneven sidewalks.
Use crosswalks and walk on the sidewalk, facing traffic, whenever possible.
(4) Go In Groups
Trick or treat with others – don’t do it alone.
(5) Lights On
Only visit well-lit houses.
