KSP Offers Trick or Treating Safety Tips

Date of News Release: 10/19/2011

(FRANKFORT, KY) - Before you know it ghosts and goblins will be running in the streets to trick-or-treat and Kentucky State Police want to make sure your kids stay safe this Halloween.

Capt. David Jude, Spokesperson for KSP, says the agency wants the children to have a fun but safe trick or treating experience.

"Halloween is traditionally a time for children to have fun, but most often it is the children who can be injured by situations that are avoidable," says Jude. "Be sure your child's costume does not obstruct their vision and is not so cumbersome that they can trip over it."

"On Halloween evening, we're placing our children in probably some of the most dangerous traffic situations you could imagine," adds Jude. "Our children are outside after dark, they walk along and cross unfamiliar streets and they often wear dark colors which are difficult for motorists to see."

Below are some safety tips for adults and youngsters so you can enjoy this special night:

The KSP also wants to remind those driving on Halloween to be extra cautious of our small pedestrians.

For more information about safe trick or treating please contact Kentucky State Police at (502) 782-1780.
