2019 Halloween Safety Guide in Prescott
2017 Halloween Safety Tips
We’re approaching the festive holiday of spooks, happy haunts, and lots of trick or treaters. In Prescott, a ton of people (parents and children alike) are looking forward to seeing the enchanting historic homes on Mount Vernon Ave, live music, and overflowing treat bags from generous neighbors.
Parents are taking their children trick or treating from house to house, older children may be crossing streets, unattended in the dark. Because trick-or-treating happens at night, visibility is reduced, so it’s important to keep your eyes peeled when driving.
It’s such a fun time of year to welcome in the holiday season, our team here at the Daniel Martinez Agency wants to share a couple tips to keep you, your family, and your personal belongings safe this Halloween:
- If you’re out trick-or-treating, park and lock your car. Walk from house to house in neighborhoods where homes are close together.
- When walking, be sure to cross the streets only at designated cross walks. Don’t cross between parked cars as drivers may not be able to see you or your children.
- Attach Halloween safety products like blinking bicycle lights or reflector strips to your children’s costumes so they’ll be more visible to drivers.
- When driving, keep your headlights on at all times. Take extra precaution and drive slowly in residential neighborhoods.
- Like any time, avoid distracted driving. Don’t use your cell phones while driving or munch on candy while behind the wheel. It’s SO important to keep your eyes on the road ahead.
- Turn on your yard lights so trick-or-treaters can easily see the path to your front door.
- Keep the pathways clear and free of any electrical cords so trick-or-treaters can walk easily.
From all of us here at the Daniel Martinez Agency, have a safe and happy Halloween!
