Important safety tips to remember to keep your trick-or-treater safe

It's hard to believe Halloween is just two days away.  


It's important to remember that pedestrian accidents are more likely on an evening with so many kids on the streets. So, be sure to outfit your trick-or-treater with as much stuff that glows as possible, starting with glow sticks, which are easy to find, cheap, and plentiful at dollar stores.

"You can have them anywhere. They come apart in little pieces, you can put them together. You can make a necklace, you can make a bracelet, inexpensive, easy to find, a wonderful little edition," says Kate, CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide.

The group, Safe Kids Worldwide suggests kids even carry goodie bags that glow. 

And if they don't, add reflective tape.

Meanwhile, parents should be waving a flashlight to make sure drivers know there are kids near the road.

As for drivers, remember to lower your speed, turn your headlights on earlier in the day

, and expect the unexpected.
