According to a CDC (Centers for Disease Control) study, the potential for automobile related accidents with young pedestrians increases four times on Halloween. Here are a few tips to keep the little ones one safe during this week's Halloween festivities: 
• Pay extra attention, particularly to crosswalks, intersections and the side of the road. Kids tend to walk along the curbs, cutting across the street to get to other homes.
• Do not pass other vehicles that have stopped in the roadway, they could be dropping off children.
• Drive below the posted speed limit in residential areas during trick-or-treating hours. This will allow you time to break if you see a child dart in front of you.
• Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.
• Let your child know that they should never get into the car of a stranger at any time.
