It’s that time of year again as today is the spookiest day of the year which is Halloween! Although it’s a time to go out and have some fun, safety is a top priority when heading out on Halloween night.
Louisiana State Police released some tips for families trick or treating this evening.
If your child’s costume has a mask, make sure it doesn’t restrict vision and breathing.
Plan a trick or treating route in well lit neighborhoods.
Inspect candy when you get home.
Officials also have a warning for those who’ll be behind the wheel.
“They’ll be a lot of pedestrians on the roadway, animals also. Some neighborhoods don’t have sidewalks so drivers need to be aware that they’ll be a lot more pedestrian traffic on the road. They need to be cognisant of that. They need to be aware to look both ways at intersections.” :13
Most trick or treating times in the area begin around 6 p.m. so be aware of those times and be careful on the roads.
