Personal injury lawyer Wayne Grant and the legal team at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. know that there are a number of steps that you can take to help keep this Halloween a safe and fun experience for your family. It is critical that parents know where their children are at all times. Children 12 and under should be accompanied by a responsible adult while trick-or-treating, and teenagers should be given a cell phone so they can contact their parents in case of an emergency. All children should be repeatedly taught how to be safe while trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.

The best way to prevent a serious injury pedestrian accident in Georgia is to make sure that children are visible. Children and parents should carry flashlights. Additionally, it is a good idea to use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags to enhance visibility. It is also important to choose the right costume as well. Wearing makeup is much safer than wearing a mask that may restricts your child’s vision. You may also consider suggesting a costume that is bright and easier to see in the dark. A dark cloak or gown will be difficult to see from a distance, while something as simple as a glow stick or light-up jewelry can help make children more visible to drivers.

Take the time to discuss with your child how to safely cross the road. Even if your child knows about traffic safety, it is helpful to discuss using extra caution. They should only cross the road at crosswalks and intersections. When they have to cross traffic, they should look left, right, and left again. Under no circumstances should they dart into traffic. It may also be in your best interest to discuss the trick-or-treat route before your child leaves. Suggest well-lit areas where other trick-or-treaters will be, as there is certainly safety in numbers.
