Halloween Safe Walking Tips: - Walk on a sidewalk if one is available. - If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic, as far to the side as safely possible. - Be Predictable: drivers do not expect to see pedestrians come out from between parked cars or behind shrubbery. - Follow the rules of the road at driveways and intersections. - Make sure traffic has stopped or passed before you step into the street when crossing - Make yourself as visible to motorists as possible, especially at night and in low light by carrying a flashlight, wearing a small flashing strobe light, and wearing reflective clothing. - Bright colored clothing is not enough. Reflective materials on the parts of your body that move, such as feet, legs, and arms, can be seen at greater distances by drivers in the dark. Carry your flashlight on the side closest to traffic. - Before the Halloween festivities begin, plan a way to get home safely at the end of the night. Alcohol affects judgment, balance, and reaction time. - Walking impaired can be just as dangerous as drunk driving.

As Halloween approaches and plans are being made for Trick or Treat, make sure to take a moment to read these safety tips.
