It is important that child pedestrians and drivers take extra precautions this Halloween as to avoid any pedestrian accidents. Children going out at night are at a higher risk to be involved in an accident.
Parents are urged to tell their children about safety before they leave the house. Children should stay on lighted paths throughout the neighborhoods and should always be in a group. Parental supervision is recommended for children under the age of 12 this Halloween.
Drivers need to proceed with caution when driving through neighborhoods tonight. The most populated hours for trick-or-treating are between 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Near crosswalks, drivers should reduce their speed and avoid distractions inside their car as well.
Pedestrians can be seriously injured in the event of a car accident. If you have been the victim of a pedestrian accident, please contact the Madison motor vehicle accidents attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
