Halloween is an exciting time for children. With the distraction of candy and costumes children can easily forget safety tips. Here are some simple tips to keep Halloween a safe night for everyone.


  • Drive slower than usual on residential streets.
  • Don’t pass stopped vehicles.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Look for children at intersections, on medians, and curbs.
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly.
  • Obey traffic regulations.
  • Eliminate distractions inside the car.


  • Teach children not to dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
  • Cross the street at designated crosswalks.
  • Teach children to only enter lit houses.
  • Ensure children under 12 are supervised.
  • If older children will be trick-or-treating without you ensure they are travelling in groups.
  • Consider indoor community centres or local shopping centres for Halloween night activities.
  • Check Halloween treats before your children eat them.


  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers.
  • Choose face paint and makeup instead of masks.
  • Carry glow sticks or flashlights.
  • Wear costumes that fit to avoid trips and falls.
  • Use the sidewalk when possible.
