Drive with Caution

If you are going to be driving through neighborhoods at peak trick-or-treating time you should slow down and pay extra attention to what’s going on around you. Be on the lookout for children wearing dark colored costumes that might be hard to see. Watch for adults and kids walking near the streets. Also be ready to react to kids darting out in front of you from the sidewalk areas.

Be Mindful of the Candy You Give Out

If you’re handing out candy to trick-or-treaters be aware of any dangers involved. Try not to give out anything that could become a choking hazard to younger children, like jawbreakers and Gobstoppers. Also avoid passing out candy with peanuts in it, like some candy bars and packs of peanut M & Ms, to reduce of the risk of triggering an allergic reaction.

Always Check Your Child’s Candy

At the end of the night you should check and sort your child’s candy. Trash any candy that’s opened, looks like it has been opened, or if the candy is not in its original wrapper. Be wary of any homemade treats and candies. Only let your child eat them if they came from someone you trust and know.
