OPP offers tips on having a safe Halloween

Posted: 2023-10-27 12:16:58 By: thebay

With Halloween just around the corner, the OPP reminds trick-or-treaters, parents, and drivers, to have a spooky, yet safe Halloween.

Police recommend:

  • Trick-or-treaters should always walk on a sidewalk and use crosswalks while trick or treating.                                                                          
  • Trick-or-treaters should wear bright colours to make them more visible to drivers, and ensure children's masks or other face coverings do not obstruct their vision.
  • Before the Halloween festivities begin, create a "buddy system" to help get each other home safely and prevent walking alone.        
  • Drivers should be alert and slow down for trick-or-treaters.
