For kids, Halloween means they get to dress up in cute costumes, visit a haunted house, and get free candies. However, studies have shown that the number of car-related fatalities and injuries are high on Halloween. But did you know that you can keep your kids safe with a reflective pumpkin bag? Following a positive reception of their reflective shopping bag, Spar Belgium released their newest pumpkin bag with reflective sides for kids. The goal is to help curb the increasing child pedestrian accidents.
Traffic accidents involving kids are much higher during Halloween than any other days throughout the year. This is not surprising considering the fact that trick-or-treating and other Halloween related activities are held at night. Kids can get overexcited with the treats they get and sometimes they stop paying attention to the traffic and their surroundings.
Halloween parties also mean alcohol and drunk driving incidents. Nevertheless, automobile accidents are preventable. Having your kids use a reflective pumpkin bag may be what you need to ease your worries.
Why Use Reflective Pumpkin Bag?
This Halloween bag is designed with a reflective piping on the sides to increase road visibility so kids can cross the streets safely. The reflective bags are visible even from afar, making it easier for drivers to slow down before it is too late. It also allows parents to keep track of their kids.
It is made of PP-woven fabric with glossy lamination. The woven fabric provides reinforced strength and flexibility so you can use it for years to come, saving you the trouble of buying lots of plastic loot bags.
Your kids’ safety should be your priority. While using a Halloween bag with reflective sides help, it is still important to be vigilant on the road. Here are a few tips to ensure a safe and fun Halloween for kids.
Keep Kids Safe with these Road Safety Tips
- Increase Road Visibility: Have your kids carry a reflective Halloween bag when trick-or-treating. You can also add reflective strips on their costumes or have them bring glow sticks to enhance visibility.
- Pick The Right Size: Choose costumes that are not too big or too long to prevent trips and falls. Always make sure that their clothes allow them to move without restrictions.
- Stop, Look and Listen: Teach kids basic traffic rules like crossing when the traffic light turns green and staying on the roadside when it’s red. Train them to use the pedestrian lane and to look left and right before crossing.
More and more people are realizing the benefits of reflective bags. Large companies and organizations such as Mastercard and the NYPD are also keeping up with the trend and released their own reflective shopping bags. The additional safety feature of the reflective strips has been helping keep shoppers and pedestrians safe on the streets.
