Safety, health take priority for Halloween


"Carry something illuminated so that people can see you", said Keech.

BC normally sees an increase in accidents each and every year.

He stresses it's key to slow down and pay extra attention.

The Guam Police Department last week issued some safety tips a year ago to make sure everyone has fun on this festive holiday.

If you are looking for the best place to take the kidlets trick-or-treating, Rutland should be on the top of your list.

Families were able to trick or treat safely this Halloween in Manchester by walking up and down Main Street in the daylight.

Stay well below the speed limit: Drive well below the speed limit in residential areas, especially between 5:00 9:00 p.m., the peak time for trick-or-treating.

The Kerala High Court had annulled Hadiya and Shafin's marriage in May and the Supreme Court has ordered an NIA probe into it. Chief Justice of India Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud will be hearing the case.

Children should also wear brightly coloured clothing with added reflective tape, carry a flashlight and avoid wearing a mask since it can be hard for them to see (use makeup instead). Many drivers will be driving slowly to watch out for trick-or-treaters.

Party goers should call a cab if they have been drinking throughout the night. Let the owner come to you with candy.

Cross the street using traffic signals and crosswalks. If your child insists on being a ninja this year, add reflective tape to their outfit and treat bag, and make them use a flashlight or headlamp to help them stand out in the dark. Having an entire 25 token velvet bag of game tokens, to me, was a little like someone combining Christmas and my birthday into one glorious afternoon, so of course I said yes, and with that, trick or treating and I parted ways. If you do and you're caught, the fine could run you $500 or more. And because I wasn't totally happy with my snap selection of a November 3, 1981, photo of trick or treaters alarming the holy heck out of some poor resident at Odd Fellows, I also threw in an ad from the October 3, 1986, screening of (natch) "Trick or Treat" at the Cinema 3.

Avoid masks, which can obstruct vision.

Always walk facing traffic if there are no sidewalks available and stay as far to the left as possible.

Homeowners often are overlooked when the discussion turns to precautions for Halloween safety, but those who wish to participate in the yearly tradition should make sure their yards are clear of such things as ladders, hoses, dog leashes and flower pots or anything that can trip youngsters.
