Halloween is today and with that comes trick or treating. State Trooper Jesse LaGrange says it’s vital that drivers easily see children who are out and about. He says make sure they are easily seen in darker shaded costumes.
LaGrange says drivers need to be aware of the extra foot traffic in neighborhoods and drive with caution.
Registered sex offenders cannot participate in trick or treating activities. For extra protection, Lagrange says for parents to be proactive and investigate the neighborhood they plan to take children beforehand.
Other tips include children knowing their address and phone number in case they get lost, trick or treating in well-lit neighborhoods and having parents inspect all candy before eating after returning home.
