State police urge trick or treat safety

Police are asking drivers to be extra cautious, especially on residential streets and when backing up.

Many others expressed concerns regarding teenagers' motivation to trick or treat, noting that once they hit their teen years, kids might be more interested in asking for money rather than candy from strangers.

Be mindful that costumes incorporating fake knives, swords and guns can still cause injuries and may even be mistaken as real weapons. But, if kids want masks, parents should ensure they fit and have large eye openings.

Keep your doorway well-lit and clear of tripping hazards and open flames. Children under eight years old should be accompanied by an adult.

Keep decorations away from candles, light bulbs or heaters.

Make sure drivers see you.

Stay outside while trick-or-treating. Having a snack or meal before going out to trick-or-treat can help. Go down one side of the street, then up the other. They say they'll have plenty of troopers out on patrol. Tampering is rare, but it does happen. Look for unusual appearance, discoloration, tiny pinholes or tears in wrappers. Carefully inspect fruit and homemade treats and ask who gave them.

Once the candy comes out, everyone is a goblin!

¯ Stay in well-lighted areas and carry a flashlight.

How much candy is too much candy on Halloween? The association may also host a clubhouse party for the holiday.

- Be respectful of neighborhoods when trick-or-treating. You can use it to plan the best route for your trick-or-treaters. Remind children not to eat all their candy at once or it can make them sick.
