1: Walk safely by looking left and right when crossing the road DO NOT use your Smart Phones and other electronic devices while crossing the road.

2: Make Eye contact with the drivers while crossing the road with busy traffic and also teach your children to do that.

3: Always use traffic signals and crosswalks. Keep looking left and right while you cross.

4: Either use sidewalks or paths, and if there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far as possible.

5: Ask your children to stick to familiar areas during their Trick-or-Treat campaigns and if they are under the age of 12, they MUST be in an adult’s supervision AT night.

6: Make their Halloween Costumes and Bags visible by using reflective tape and stickers. Also ask them to carry flashlights or glow sticks so the drivers can see them easily.

7: For children, avoid using Halloween Masks and use Face paints and Makeup as Masks can obstruct the child’s vision.

8: While driving in residential neighborhoods on Halloween night, slow and down and be alert because the children are excited and their movement is unpredictable.

9: The Halloween costumes should be short to avoid any tripping, especially at night.

10: Check all the candies collected by your child and if anyone of them looks not original or not wrapped in an original wrapper, through it away instantly.

Some of these should be something that kids today should do anyway - but DON'T!

How many of us have nearly run over a child because they just don't pay any attention to things around them, like traffic.

That's just kids, not just modern kids. Paying attention to your surroundings at all times is a learned skill.

Thinking about it, parents should ensure that their kids are partaking in TOT in relatively safe neighbourhoods; ie: quiet subdivisions. In reality, all bets are off on Halloween night. I was out of character when I was a kid during TOT. C'mon, "Behave Yourself" on Halloween? Gimme a break. Parents, due diligence, stepped up this night.
The streets are a lot safer today. We didn't have street lights, glow bracelets, reflective clothing 50 years ago. Somehow, we survived.

Don't drop your kids of in the ghetto and they should be OK.
