Making sure trick or treaters are more visible to drivers is easy by adding POP BANDS to their costume, arm, or leg.
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Telling of ghost stories, viewing of horror films, visiting a haunted house or other dark attraction are typical Halloween traditions. On Halloween, the scares are supposed to be imaginary. But, all too often, the make-believe fear becomes genuine anguish when children and teens are injured, or even killed, when they're hit by cars or injured in other types of accidents.
Every 7 minutes a pedestrian is either injured or killed in a traffic accident with fifty percent of these injuries occurring between 6 p.m. and 12 a.m.
Research shows that children are four times more likely to be hit by a car on Halloween than on any other night of the year. Most trick-or-treating will take place when it's dark, making it harder for drivers to spot excited, inattentive kids who may dart out into the road and who may be wearing masks making it harder for them to spot oncoming cars as well.
Making sure trick or treaters are more visible to drivers is easy by adding POP BANDS™ to their costume, arm, or leg. Super Reflective POP BANDS™ provide 360 degrees of visibility in low light conditions and can be worn on arms, ankles, wrists, bike handles, baby carriages, back packs ... and more. The company's best-selling POP BANDS™, which pop on like snap bands. Just pop them on … and go off to trick-or-treat! See them in action on YouTube.

CEO Barbara Kantor founded Vedante in 2006. Barbara's inspiration came during an evening walk when she witnessed a pedestrian being struck by a car. The pedestrian, in a cross walk, was unaware of the driver's inability to see her. Deeply impacted by what she saw, Barbara delved into research on safety and visibility and then studied reflective products that were currently on the market. Barbara's research and her 25 year background in fashion design led to her development of Vedante reflective safety products that are attractive and easy to use.
