Happy Halloween!

Boo! Happy Halloween from Wolfe Lawyers!

It's time for a fun night of trick-or-treating. Here are a few basic tips to help make sure it's a safe one:

Walk Safely:

• Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.

• Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.

• Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

• Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.

• Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to
the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.

• Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween:

• Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighbourhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.

• Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.

• Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.

• Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.

• Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day
to spot children from greater distances.

• Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

Happy Halloween!

Trick or treat!

It's that spooky time of year again! Children of all ages love Halloween (and by "all ages" we mean adults too!). While everyone wants to have fun, it's worthwhile to take some basic precautions to help ensure the safety of our children. The Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs have some great tips to this end. This includes incorporating a flashlight or glow stick into your child's costume, instructing children to walk instead of run, trick or treating along one side of the street and only crossing at an intersection or designated crosswalk, removing trip hazards from your home's entrance, and turning on a light to improve visibility.
