Below are a few safety tips for pedestrians and drivers.



Halloween Safety Tips - KIPP DC


  • Make sure your clothes are bright. You should carry lighted lanterns and apply reflectors to every visible part of your anatomy if you are wearing a dark costume. Don't forget to put them on your shoes as well.

  • Be sure to hold on to your child's hand. When they see their friends or a decorated house, they get excited and want to run across the street. Be sure to hold on to them at all costs.

  • Cross at crosswalks whenever possible. Nevertheless, you should remain vigilant. Drivers will be looking at your children's costumes, not necessarily at them crossing the street. Or, they may be using their cell phone while driving.

  • Make sure you and your children look every which way before you do cross the street.

  • Wait for signals. 

  • Do not jaywalk. It could be dangerous.

  • Do not try to beat a car (run across the street when you see a car coming). Wait for the car to first pass where you want to cross.

  • Use a flashlight to show you are there.

  • All drivers should stay off their cell phones, watch the intersections, and the rest of the street. Children may dart out in front of you, so go very slowly. Watch for children who may be jaywalking .

  • If you are partying instead of trick or treating please do not drink and drive.

  • Wait behind other vehicles that are pulled over. They may be dropping off a group of children.

  • Always warn your children that they are not to get into the car of anyone they do not already know well. Give them a cell phone to use in case of an emergency.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    These tips may seem like common sense but it never hurts to be reminded : ) Wishing you and your family a very spooky, fun and safe halloween :)
