The Chatham-Kent police would like to remind all drivers to be extra careful while travelling this evening as there will be lots of little ghosts and goblins trick-or-treating. Although we encourage children to trick-or-treat with a responsible adult, this is an exciting night and sometimes children are not as careful as they should be.
Trick or Treating Safety Tips
The Chatham-Kent Police Service would like to offer the following safety tips to ensure a fun and safe night:
• trick or treat on well-lit streets and always walk on the sidewalk
• cross at marked intersections and look both ways before crossing to ensure that all vehicles are
obeying the traffic signals
• children should always go trick or treating with a responsible adult
• make sure that your children wear costumes that are bright, reflective and short enough to
• have children carry flashlights(with new batteries) or glow sticks
• consider using make-up or face paint instead of a mask for better visibility
• ensure children are walking from house to house and not running
• trick or treat at homes where you know the owners
• carry a cell phone and report suspicious activity to police immediately
• parents should sort and check all treats before they are eaten
With the increase in pedestrian traffic tonight, motorists are encouraged to reduce their speed, refrain from drinking and driving and put their phones down. Let’s ensure our kids have a safe and howling good time.
