安省政府安全提示:过一个安全的万圣节

来源:安省政府   更新:2017-10-28 09:12:53   作者:安省政府

Ontario is reminding drivers and pedestrians to stay safe and be aware while ghouls, goblins and ghosts celebrate this Halloween. 

To help protect excited trick-or-treaters who are on the streets after dark, drivers are reminded to:

  • Slow down and stay alert, especially near stopped vehicles who may be dropping off children
  • Always yield to crossing pedestrians, be aware of your surroundings and watch out for children darting onto the street
  • Avoid any distractions - keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel
  • Always communicate clearly with pedestrians and other drivers on the road, and use your turn signals
  • Always drive sober

Parents and trick-or-treaters are encouraged to review safety precautions before heading out, including pedestrian and traffic safety rules, and are reminded to:

  • Be seen -- there are many ways to make it easier for drivers to see you, like wearing costumes with bright fabrics or reflective material and carrying a flashlight
  • Be alert and cautious of surroundings, especially on roadways
  • Look both ways when crossing the street and make eye contact with drivers
  • Always walk -- do not run from house to house
  • Walk on the sidewalks whenever possible and always cross at pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks or marked intersections
  • If a sidewalk is unavailable, walk on the left side of the street facing traffic
  • Ensure children under the age of 12 have proper supervision
  • Trick-or-treat in familiar areas that are well lit

QUICK FACTS

  • Motor vehicle collisions are a leading cause of death for Canadian children.
  • On average, one person is killed on Ontario’s roads every 17 hours. In 2014, pedestrians and cyclists made up approximately 25 per cent of Ontario’s road fatalities.
  • In May, Ontario passed legislation to protect the most vulnerable such as pedestrians and cyclists, by giving municipalities more tools to address speeding. These tools include the ability to set reduced default speed limits and use automated speed-enforcement systems on roads with speed limits below 80 km/h that are designated as community safety zones or in school zones.
  • In June 2015, Ontario passed legislation to toughen penalties for offences such as distracted driving.
  • In September, Ontario announced that it will propose legislation that, if passed, would help protect pedestrians and cyclists, and reduce the number of people killed or injured by impaired, distracted and dangerous drivers.
