It's time to "fall back". Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday at 2am, remember to set your clocks back an hour. With Daylight Saving Time ending, it is getting darker out earlier and bicyclists and pedestrians are less visible. Some accidents can be prevented by following the rules of the road. The Springfield Police Department's ultimate goal is to keep everyone safe. If you are riding a bicycle at night you are required to have a white light that is visible for 500 feet attached to the front of the bicycle. A red reflector must be attached to the rear of the bicycle. You need pedal or ankle reflectors. Also side reflectors must on the bicycle or worn on the clothes of the rider. High visibility shoes are also recommended. Pedestrians should wear bright colored clothing and hats. Cross the street at intersections by utilizing crosswalks and better lighting. If there is not a crosswalk available, cross the street under a street light. Following this advice has been proven to save lives. Stay safe out there.

Here are some Halloween Safety Tips from the Springfield Police Department and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: The Springfield Police Department wants you to have a safe and enjoyable Halloween. • Plan a trick or treating route in familiar neighborhood with well-lit streets. • Make sure children know your cell phone number, their home phone number and address in case you get separated. (Attach your phone number and address to your children’s costume) • Teach children how to call 911 in an emergency. • Take a flashlight • Teach children to say NO! in a loud voice if someone tries to get them to go somewhere, accept anything other than a treat, or leave with them. Tell them to try everything they can to escape, including yelling, hitting and kicking. • Make sure older children take friends along and stay together while trick-or-treating. • Never send younger children out alone. • Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats. • Don’t let children enter a home unless you are with them. • Be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them. • Make sure you children look both ways and do not run crossing the street. • If you are concerned about your child going to a sex offenders home, you can locate sex offender’s addresses through this link below. Remember, your child may be going to go trick-or-treating in a neighborhood you are not familiar with: https://www.springfield-ma.gov/police/index.php… • Remind children to avoid homes without an outside light. • Set rules about not eating treats until they get home • Inspect all treats before allowing kids to eat them • Never walk or cross the street between parked cars • Set a curfew for your children, we recommend 8:00pm • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the police. Don’t ignore something you see, because you think – it must be Halloween related. The Springfield Police Department wishes you and your family a safe and fun night of trick-or-treating!
