As the witching hour approaches and Halloween being only a matter of days away… the OPP  is nudging ghosts and goblins with a few reminders for safe trick-or-treating.

Const. Michelle Simard has a list of them.

“One of them is wear a costume that is easily visible at night.  And if it’s not visible, consider putting reflective armbands around your arms or something on your back.  Also avoid wearing a mask. It inhibits your vision, so make-up would be a better option,” Simard advises.

“Carry a flashlight,” she says.  “Watch for traffic.  Do one side of the road at a time.  Avoid the zig-zag effect, and carefully inspect your candy when you get home. Do not have candy when you’re out on the road.”
