Halloween Safety

by: Prince, Glover & Hayes Friday, October 30th, 2009

Halloween is this Saturday and should be a fun time for everyone. Unfortunately, any time there are a lot of people out and about, the potential for danger exists. Here are some things to watch out for.

Pranks – Mischief (especially by teens and young adults) may result in injury – speeding away from the scene of a prank, drinking, driving without lights on, etc.

Trick or Treating – Always carry a flashlight and go in a group with adult supervision. Parents should check out the candy before their children eat it. You may want to take your kids to a group event instead of door to door.

Displays – You may be liable if someone is hurt on your property due to an elaborate Halloween display, poor lighting, etc.

Parties – Be sure you can safely drive in your costume, with full movement and vision. Of course, you should never drink and drive.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween.
