  • Plan your route in advance.
  • Use reflective tape, glow sticks or a flashlight to help yourself be visible and to see where you are walking.
  • Make sure your costume is well-fitted (including your shoes) and avoid masks that do not allow you to see properly.
  • Visit well-lit houses.
  • Use sidewalks and crosswalks and check for traffic before crossing the road or driveways.
  • Always let an adult check candy prior to eating anything.
