Halloween safety tips, advice

-A A +A
By The Staff

Like it or not, trick-or-treaters will be running around Wednesday evening. We need to make it as safe a time as possible.

Halloween is a time of fun for children, but it can be a scary for parents and drivers. Children are often out after dark, crossing busy streets and perhaps going to unfamiliar homes.

This year, with Halloween falling on a school day, drivers need to be particularly cautious.

But some simple tips can help parents, children, drivers and homeowners have a safe, time.

• If children are out at night, drivers need to be particularly careful at dusk and when driving either over a hill or around a curve, where visibility is limited. Use high beams to see and be seen.

• Trick-or-treaters should always be accompanied by an adult or travel in a group. Children should be told not to eat any unwrapped candy or treats until they return home where their parents can see them. Making sure kids have already eaten before heading out may help.

• Parents may want to limit kids to local events run by police stations, firehouses, senior citizen centers or local businesses, or organize their own through their school.
