[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]From all of us at the Law Offices of Scott Warmuth, have a fun and safe Halloween! According to the Centers for Disease Control, children have about a 300% increased risk of being involved in a fatal pedestrian crash on Halloween when compared to other nights. To stay safe, we recommend following some common sense safety guidelines. Drivers: Stay Alert There are many more children on the roadways, driveways, and sidewalks then you are used to seeing, especially in residential neighborhoods. Drivers: Slow Down! Improve reaction your reaction time by slowing down to at maximum 5 mph BELOW the posted speed limit. Trick-or-Treaters: Wear Reflective Clothing When preparing children to walk around a dark neighborhood, the best defense is to ensure they're visible. Reflective clothing will warn vehicles that they are present. You could also put reflective tape on candy bags. Trick-or-Treaters: Avoid Sight-reducing Masks Not being able to see oncoming traffic can lead to accidents. Ensure that costumed children can see out of any masks without obstruction.

Happy Halloween!
