Most importantly, drivers and trick-or-treaters,  put away your cellphone and pay attention to the road and cars while driving and walking. 

For Drivers:

  • Watch for children walking on roadways, curbs and medians.
  • Enter and exit driveways carefully.
  • When the sun sets, watch for children in dark clothing.

For Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Use reflective tape on their costumes and bags to make sure they are visible.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!
