A 38 year old man was in an accident on 4th Line Road at Dilworth Road, close to Kemptville at about 3:50 a.m. this morning.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone. Before you head out tomorrow night , please take a minute to review these Hallowe’en safety tips from the Red Cross… My children are quite excited for the big day , as are most. We have finally decided on a lamb, a witch and a glowstick guy ! Looking forward to seeing all the kids. Enjoy your night everyone and please be safe !!! -Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth
With witches, goblins, and super-heroes descending on neighborhoods across Canada, the Canadian Red Cross offers parents some safety tips to help prepare their children for a safe and enjoyable trick-or-treat holiday. Halloween should be filled with surprise and enjoyment, and following some common practices to keep events safer and more fun!
- Costumes should be light-colored and flame resistant with reflective strips so that children are more easily seen at night. (And remember to put reflective tape on bikes, skateboards, and brooms, too!)
- Costumes should be short enough to avoid tripping.
- Remind children to keep away from open fires and candles. (Costumes can be extremely flammable.)
- Use face paint rather than masks or things that will cover the eyes.
- Remind children to walk, slither, and sneak on sidewalks – not in the street.
- Explain to children that calls should be made along one side of the street first and then the other, and that it’s best to cross the street only at intersections or crosswalks.
- Remind children to look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars, trucks, and low-flying brooms.
- Provide yourself or the children with a flashlight to see better and to be better seen.
- Have children plan their route and share it with you and the family.
- Trick or Treaters should travel in groups of four or five. Young children should be accompanied by an adult.
- Visit homes that have the porch light on.
- Make sure children know they should accept treats at the door and must not get into cars or enter the homes or apartments of strangers.
- Remind children not to eat their treats and goodies until they are examined by an adult at home. And candy should not be eaten if the package is already opened. Small, hard pieces of candy are a choking hazard for young children.
Injury is no accident. Prepare! Stay Safe! Survive!

Ottawa Law Firms – Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…As an Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer, I applaud and support the efforts made by the Ottawa Police to make our Ottawa streets a safer place….The Ottawa Police Service will participate in Canada Road Safety Week which runs from May 16 to May 23. In 2010, there were 30 fatal car accidents that resulted in the deaths of 34 people in the Ottawa community. Consequently, the Ottawa Police have made traffic safety a high priority through various initiatives. One program the Ottawa Police have put in place is the RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) Programs during the evenings of Thursday May 19th and Friday May 20th. The RIDE Program in Ontario is led by the police community which runs all year long and involves random police spot checks where vehicles are stopped and drivers are checked for impaired driving.
Ottawa Police are also actively engaged in Project E.R.A.S.E. (Eliminate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere) a collaborative effort of 22 police services, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment whose goal is to change poor driver behavior through education and strategic enforcement. Sadly, since 1999 48 people have been killed in Ontario as a result of street racing activities . In addition, excessive speed continues to be the leading contributing factor in fatal car accidents.
During Canada’s Road Safety Week, Ottawa police will focus on 4 issues:
- Drinking and driving.
- Seat belts and child restraints.
- Aggressive driving, driving at unsafe speeds, following too closely or running red lights and stop signs.
- Distracted Driving
As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer and along with the Ottawa Police, encourage everyone on our roadways to work towards making our Ottawa roads and Ontario roads the safest in the world. Let’s do it Ottawa !
