The Coeur d'Alene Police Department on Monday put out a list of Halloween safety guidelines:
- Wear light colored clothing; even better, wear something that is retro-reflective. Keep the clothing short enough to prevent tripping.
- Make sure children can see well through face masks, Avoid wearing masks which can block vision, or use makeup.
- Trick-or-treat during the daylight. If you must trick-or-treat at night, carry a flashlight. Adults should always accompany young children.
- Stay within the neighborhood and only visit homes you know or attend community-sponsored events.
- Travel with a parent, older sibling, or a group of children.
- Watch for traffic. Cross streets carefully, at corners, never in the middle of the block, especially between parked vehicles.
- Only give and accept wrapped or packaged candy. Never eat candy before an adult has had a chance to inspect it.
- Keep costumed children away from pets. The pet may not recognize the child and become frightened.
- Avoid hard plastic or wood props such as daggers or swords. Substitute with foam rubber, which is soft and flexible.
- Motorists need to slow down. Try driving five miles-per-hour slower than the posted speed limit. Be extra alert to children crossing the street.
- Turn your headlights on. Even in daylight, headlights will make your vehicle more visible.
