Trick-or-treaters should always use crosswalks, look both ways before crossing the street, and obey traffic signals.
The RNC wants everyone to have a safe and spooktacular Halloween. Police are asking parents, children and drivers to take extra precautions this Halloween to ensure a frightfully fun celebration. Drivers are asked to slow down and use extra caution. Trick-or-treaters should always use crosswalks, look both ways before crossing the street, and obey traffic signals. Know the neighbourhood and plan your route in advance. Avoid unfamiliar areas and stay on well-lit streets. Stick with friends or an adult when going door-to-door and never enter a home, apartment, or vehicle. Ensure face make-up and/or face masks do not obstruct vision. Wear reflective tape or use glow sticks to greatly increase visibility. A flashlight can also ensure you’re easily seen by drivers. Inspect all treats before eating and throw away any items that appear to be tampered with. Halloween is a wickedly wonderful time for making magical memories, but let's ensure it's a safe one!
