Follow these simple safety tips to have a fun and safe Halloween.

Walk Safely

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
  • Put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths.
  • Walk facing traffic.
  • Walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
  • Watch for cars that are turning or backing up.
  • Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
  • Stay in familiar neighborhoods that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.

Costumes for a Safe Halloween

  • Plan costumes and bags that are bright and add reflective tape or stickers.
  • Use face paint and nontoxic makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
  • Make sure shoes fit well.
  • Your costume should be the right size to prevent trips and falls.
  • When buying premade costumes, look for flame resistant materials.
  • Have children carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween

  • Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods.
  • Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
  • Put away your phone while driving.
  • Turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.
  • Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Be especially alert for kids during those hours.
