Have a safe Halloween! Here are some Halloween safety tips to keep in mind: Walk Safely Trick-or-Treaters should only cross the street using crosswalks and traffic signals. Watch for cars, do not dart or cross between parked cars. Be aware of surroundings and make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of traffic. Avoid using cell phones or other devices while walking to increase awareness. Trick or Treat With an Adult Kids should trick-or-treat with adult supervision and should always stick to well lit, familiar areas. Trick-or-treating in groups is encouraged. Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe Decorate costumes with reflective tape or stickers. Consider using face paint or makeup instead of masks since masks can obstruct vision. Incorporate glow sticks and/or flashlights into costumes to increase visibility. Be Respectful of Property and Look Out for Each Other By demonstrating respect for property, decorations, and residents, we create neighborhoods that are great places to live and visit. Remember to be respectful of homes you visit during trick-or-treating, and keep an eye out for dangerous or suspicious activity. Drive With Extra Caution on Halloween Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. so drivers should slow down and be alert since children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. Drivers can be extra diligent by eliminating distractions inside their vehicle and making eye contact with pedestrians near the roadway. Do Not Drink and Drive Designate a sober driver before you drink. Don’t let guests or partygoers drive if they have been drinking.
