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