It’s almost Halloween, and the RCMP wants to remind the public to keep the tricks and treats safe.
They have some tips for children’s costumes:
- Wear a light-coloured or bright costume, reflective tape or arm bands to heighten visibility.
- Make sure the costume that is properly fitted to reduce the chance of tripping on it.
- Select a costume that is constructed from flame-retardant materials.
- Make sure your vision is not restricted. Consider completing your costume with make-up not masks.
The RCMP will be increasing patrols on Halloween, and encourage any party goers to plan ahead for their transportation needs.
They also ask drivers to be extra cautious as kids will be out and about collecting candy.
