Please use the following safety tips when operating a motor vehicle:

-Always drive at safe speeds, especially in residential areas.

-Use extreme caution when backing from a driveway or parked position.

-Watch for small children who may be "trick-or-treating" in and around neighborhoods.

-Pay special attention to the roadway and avoid distracted driving.

-Always drive sober!

Troopers urge parents to chaperon children while they are outside enjoying this festive occasion. Costumes should include proper safety attire for nighttime activities, such as a flashlight and bright reflective clothing.

Remember to always use sidewalks and walk in well-lighted areas when they are available. Children should never walk unattended, especially around unfamiliar areas.
