State Police Halloween Safety Tips

Officials with the Illinois State Police remind motorists and parents that children in many communities will be trick-or-treating during the upcoming Halloween weekend and on Halloween night. The ISP encourages motorists and parents to take special safety precautions during the Halloween festivities.

Motorists should refrain from wearing a mask or bulky costume while driving as both can reduce efforts to safely operate a vehicle. Pedestrians should only cross streets at designated cross walks and make extra efforts to ensure it is safe to cross. Children should be reminded not to cross the street between parked vehicles and to look left, right, and left again before crossing the street. (read the full WGEL Radio article HERE)
