As a law firm, we see a noticeable spike in pedestrian collision accidents around this time of year. These are the kind of cases where somebody is walking on the street and they get hit by a car or some other sort of motor vehicle.
What explains the spike is anybody’s guess. But, it would make sense that near the end of October we get less daylight, making visibility more difficult for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike. We also have some drearier weather which can lead to visibility issues as well. And who can forget the Halloween Holiday, whereby residential streets are flooded with trick-or-treaters in full-blown costume.
There are a lot of young parents who read our blogs; therefore I want to share with you some of our law firm’s top tips on how to keep Halloween safe when you’re outside trick-or-treating this holiday season.
Whether you’re celebrating at a Halloween party or by trick-or-treating with your kids, these common sense precautions will help everyone have a safe evening of (enjoyable) tricks and treats!
