As per usual around this time of year, various safety tips are offered to keep trick-or-treaters safe on Halloween night.
B.C. Transit recommends incorporating visibility into one’s costume, making a plan for if you get separated from your group, always using cross walks when crossing the road, and never entering a strangers home or automobile. Drivers are also reminded to be extra cautious as children can often get overexcited on Halloween and forget basic rules of safety.
ICBC also weighs in with some Halloween safety tips, saying costumes should disrupt a child's sight and hearing as little as possible, and children walking the streets without the accompaniment of an adult should always pre-plan their route.
Most importantly, have fun, collect lots of delicious candy and have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
