Trick or Treat Safety Tips

These safety tips can help you keep your child safe while they trick or treat and significantly reduce their risk of injuries.

  • Choose the right costume: Your child’s costume should fit them properly as a small costume can be uncomfortable and a big one can pose a serious tripping hazard. In addition, it’s a good idea to add reflective accessories on their costume so that they can be seen by motorists and other trick or treaters.
  • Be selective with the neighborhood: Some neighborhoods are safer for trick or treat than others. Make sure your child goes trick or treating in a neighborhood with lots of lighting and sidewalks. Avoid main streets or those that don’t seem to have a lot of light.
  • Carry flashlights: By carrying a few flashlights with you, you can ensure your child’s trick or treating group stays together and nobody gets lost in the dark.
  • Discourage solo trick or treating: Regardless of how old your child is, they should always trick or treat in a group. If they are younger, a few trustworthy adults should tag along.
  • Don’t assume the right of way: Just because one car stops, there is no guarantee another one will. Remember that motorists may have a tough time seeing your trick or treat group so you can’t assume the right away.
