Torgenson Law would like to remind children and parents of some safety tips while you are out walking on Halloween.
Arizona has seen dramatic increases in the number of pedestrian accident injuries. The month of October presents unique risks for children, as fall weather in Arizona brings people outdoors, and the Halloween holiday approaches.
More children are hit by vehicles on Halloween than on any other day each year. During the day and evening on the holiday, children are out trick-or-treating, walking along sidewalks and roadways, and crossing streets. It is important for both children and parents to understand the potential dangers children face on Halloween and the steps they can take to remain safe.
The pedestrian accidents at Torgenson Law recommend the following safety tips for Halloween trick-or-treaters:
Drivers should also use extreme caution on Halloween as it is everyone’s responsibility to keep children safe while enjoying the holiday.
