Trick-or-treating is a much anticipated activity that starts in the early hours of Halloween night. Prime hours for this activity are from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Unfortunately, more pedestrian accidents happen during nighttime hours.
Safety needs to be a focus for drivers and children this Halloween. People operating motor vehicles should avoid cutting through neighborhoods to get to their destination faster due to the high amount of children that will be located in those places. Slowing down can be the difference between life and death in some situations. Drivers should expect children to not just cross the street in designated crosswalks as well.
Parents of trick-or-treaters need to update their children on safety. Children should wear light colored costumes so they are more visible to drivers and they should also stay in areas where there is ample street lighting.
Pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries to the pedestrians involved. If you have been a victim of a pedestrian accident, please contact the Milwaukee pedestrian injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling (414) 271-0900 today.
