Tonight numerous children and adults will be walking throughout residential neighborhoods partaking in Halloween festivities. It is imperative that pedestrians and drivers use extreme caution on the roads tonight.
Parents should inform their children on safety before they venture out. Children should always stay in a group and walk on the sidewalks. Stray children running through the street can become a severe hazard to drivers. Make sure that the children are in an area with enough outdoor lighting to be visible to oncoming cars.
At intersections it is important that the trick-or-treaters look both ways before crossing over. Bringing a flashlight along is a great idea as well as dressing up in reflective clothing so as to be more visible to motor vehicles. It is strongly urged that drivers should drive much slower throughout the night and always be on the lookout for children running across the street.
Pedestrians are always more seriously injured in an accident than the drivers of the vehicles are. If you have been the victim of a pedestrian accident, please contact the Appleton motor vehicle accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
