Superior East OPP Issue Halloween Safety Reminder

As kids prepare to go trick-or-treating tonight, Superior East Ontario Provincial Police are reminding everyone to keep safety in mind.

Constable Levis Brousseau offers several tips for trick-or-treaters, including staying in areas that are better lit.

Constable Brousseau recommends costumes that are light-coloured or have reflective parts, using facepaint rather than masks, to allow for better vision.

Brousseau also emphasizes that drivers should be especially cautious, driving slowly and without distractions such as cell phones or loud music, instead watching carefully for children, as many may be wearing costumes that limit their vision or mobility.
