- Trick-or-treat on well-lit streets with calmer traffic.
- Choose costumes that are lighter in color and that allow your child to see and move freely.
- For costumes that are dark, use reflective tape to enhance your child’s visibility to others.
- Have your child remove his or her mask before crossing a street.
- Accompany your child while trick-or-treating.
- Older children should carry a flashlight and go out in groups for safety.
