Think Safe. Ride Safe. Be Safe!

October 28, 2011

As Halloween is approaching Near, I thought some safety tips from our favorite friends from Chuggington would be of use for you!!  These are great things to talk about with your children over the next few days if you haven’t already!Print

As you begin to think about Halloween costumes and candy, we ask that you also take a moment to consider your little ghost or goblins safety as they walk around the neighborhood trick or treating on Halloween night. Does your child know to look left-right-left before crossing the street? Do you always encourage your trainee to hold your hand while walking? Here are a few other tips to consider, and share with your readers:

    • Walk on the sidewalk.
    • If there’s no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.
    • No pushing or shoving when you walk.
    • Don’t cross the street if a car is coming.
    • Use a crosswalk if you can.

Chuggington has teamed up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and has launched a national public service campaign that promotes traffic safety to young families called, ‘Think Safe. Ride Safe. Be Safe!”Chuggington NHTSA final logo

They are focusing on four areas of traffic safety:

    • Pedestrian Safety – Click here to see the colorful KoKo Flyer about Pedestrian Safety.
    • School Bus Safety
    • Bike Safety
    • Car Seat Safety

The goal of the entire campaign is to educate and ultimately, save lives.

What Can You Do?
  • Have your child take the Traffic Safety Pledge – and they will earn their Chuggington Traffic Safety Training Badge.
  • Visit www.chuggington.com/safety – Your children can play safety games, color safety sheets, and parents can download safety tips.
  • Check out the Activity book that kids can color and learn traffic safety lessons!

  3. Mandy Kauffman says:

    We have blinky red lights that attach to the costume, so that should help with visibility.

  4. Jessica Barnett says:

    My safety tips are to wear bright colors, stay away from the main roads and always have an adult close by.

  5. Bonnye Sensenig says:

    Safety Tips- stay in a busy neighborhood, trick or treat in a group and always carry a flashlight and stay on main roads.

  6. When my kids were little one of the safety measures we took was to only go to houses with their porch lights on.

  7. get a flashlight that the kids can walk with – they’ll enjoy it and passing motorists will see the lights

  8. my tip is to hang a glow stick on the childs pail…so he can always be seen in the dark

  9. We try to stay in well lit areas, stay together as a group and bring as many reflective and light up items as possible. One year we used peel off sheets of glow in the dark paper (it was a tricky getting it off the jackets)!
