HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FROM THE RIPON POLICE DEPARTMENT

HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FROM THE RIPON POLICE DEPARTMENT

The men and women of the Ripon Police Department would like to offer some safety tips to help keep our children safe this Halloween.

Drivers: Watch for children who are easily distracted by Halloween activities Watch for small children entering the roadway without warning Turn on your headlights to increase visibility Drive below the posted speed limit

Children: Limit trick-or-treating to your own neighborhood where people are more likely to watch out for your well-being Travel in groups. It’s fun & safe Stay in a well lit area and carry a flashlight Visit well lit homes Never enter a stranger’s home, even if invited inside Have an adult inspect your candy for signs of tampering before eating • Don’t eat anything that looks suspicious

Costumes: Be highly visible to motorists Wear light colored costumes with reflective tape If you wear a mask, cut the eye holes larger to maximize vision Make sure costumes are flame resistant Avoid carrying sharp or pointed objects to prevent injuries

Parents: Pre-plan a trick-or-treat route for your children Escort younger children or designate responsibility to an older child Keep children in sight

Drivers: Remember: Drive below the posted speed limit and watch for small children entering the roadway without warning. The Ripon Police Department will be increasing patrols in local neighborhoods this Halloween in order to help keep our citizens safe.
