Trick-Or-Treat Safety Tips

It’s that time of the year again! Little ghouls and goblins will fill the streets again for spooky nights of candy collecting. As parents, we love the thrill our little monsters get, but we also worry about their safety. We found some great safety tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics that we wanted to pass along.

COSTUMES

  • Make sure costumes are bright and/or reflective.
  • Make sure kids can see out of their masks.
  • Don’t wear decorative contacts lenses.
  • Make sure costumes and accessories are flame resistant.

PUMPKIN SAFETY

  • Small children should never carve a pumpkins. Give them a marker instead.
  • Consider a glow stick or small flashlight to light your pumpkins.
  • Candlelit pumpkins should be placed on a sturdy surface away from any curtains or decorations.

TRICK-OR-TREAT SAFETY

  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
  • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.
  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.

Trunk or Treat takes places on Thursday, October 26th from 5 – 7pm. Come over after Downtown Bowling Green’s Trick or Treat! In addition to passing out tons of candy, we have a bunch of fun stuff planned at our dealerships during Trunk or Treat!

5 Reasons The Ford Edge Rocks

Ride Quality

You simply won’t find a smoother ride on the road. Seriously. We’ve tried. The Ford Edge handles itself so smoothly, you’ll feel like you’re driving a sedan.

Fun fact: The 2.7 liter twin-turbo V6 in the Edge Sport is shared with the F-150. It packs a punch! It’s the most powerful V6 gas in its class!

Family Friendly

Winning the 2017 Best 2-Row SUV for families was a great honor, and one we don’t take lightly. The competition in the SUV market is tough! But the Edge crushed it. There’s plenty of space for passengers and luggage, and it has excellent safety scores. The NHTSA gave the 2017 Edge its highest rating!

Loaded With Technology

Options include Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, keyless entry/start, foot activated power liftgate, two customizable 4.2-inch displays replacing traditional gauges, navigation, an eight-inch touchscreen, HID headlights, a panoramic sunroof, heated rear seats, a 12-speaker Sony audio system, remote start, a rearview camera, and automatic parking assist.

You name it, Edge has it.

It’s A Fuel Efficient SUV

The EPA rates the 2.0-liter turbo-four at 20/29 mpg city/highway in front-drive guise and 20/27 mpg with all-wheel drive. Front-drive Edge models with the turbo-four can also be had with an optional start/stop system, which improves its fuel economy estimates to 21/29 mpg.

Reader’s Digest Says So

We know people who read Reader’s Digest. You know people who read Reader’s Digest. We’ve never met a crazy person who reads Reader’s Digest. They’re great people! When Reader’s Digest surveyed its audience, they picked Ford as the most trusted brand! THAT. IS. HOW. YOU. KNOW.

Stop into Thayer Ford soon and take an Edge for a test drive! We’re located in lovely Bowling Green, Ohio! Thanks again, Pumpkin Peddler for letting us do a fall photoshoot on your farm!
