Halloween Safety Tips

Wenatchee – Halloween can be fun for kids, but worrisome for parents and drivers.

Here are some tips to keep your trick-or-treater safe:

With trick-or-treaters canvasing the neighborhoods, drivers need to be on high alert. Drivers need to slow down when entering neighborhoods and be prepared to stop for children in the roadway.

If you plan on attending a Halloween party, please don't drink and drive.

Local community events are also a safe alternative to children crossing multiple neighborhood streets.  Check your local community event calendars for times and locations. Whatever you choose to do this Halloween, plan ahead and make it a safe and enjoyable evening.
