A multi-ethnic group of seven children wearing halloween Children should not wear masks because it can prevent them from seeing a car. They should also avoid dark face paint and costumes that can make it hard for a driver to see them.
“We are not trying to take the fun out of the holiday, but it’s important for families to be proactive. Adults and children should not depend on motorists to see them.”
