With high pedestrian activity due to Halloween, motorists are encouraged to exercise increased caution when driving.

When trick-or-treating, pick brightly coloured costumes that can be clearly seen by motorists. Add reflective tape to the costume to increase visibility.

Give each child a flashlight to carry to make them more visible to motorists and others.

If travelling, be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
