Halloween is considered the “deadliest day for child pedestrian accidents,” according to a State Farm study.

To combat this statistic, the company is asking parents and children to remember basic safety rules.

If your child is going door-to-door go with them, stay on sidewalks, use reflective tape on costumes and wear well-fitting costumes and accessories.

Children going out without a parent should go in groups and follow the same guidelines.

If you have to walk in the street, keep to the far left, facing traffic and remember to use safe crossing procedures.
