With Halloween right around the corner, children are rightfully getting excited for one of their most exciting holidays of the year. However, this holiday can sometimes be hectic for parents and guardians as they must be conscious of where their children are and who they are with. The Riverside Sheriff’s Department offers some of the following safety tips to help make this a fun and safe holiday for all.

Tips For Adults
  • Welcome “trick-or-treaters” with your porch lights and any exterior lights on.
  • Do not give homemade or unwrapped treats to children.
  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to law enforcement immediately.
  • Keep dogs and other pets away from doors so children will not become frightened or injured.
Tips For Motorists
  • Exercise extreme caution when driving a vehicle. Be on the alert for excited children, whose vision may be obscured by masks, darting out into traffic.
  • Motorists should avoid all unnecessary travel on Halloween evening, and when driving they should drive slowly and be alert.
  • Many accidents occur when motorists are backing vehicles out of driveways, unaware of the presence of small children.
Tips for Trick-Or-Treaters
  • Think practically when it comes to costumes, avoid vision-impairing costumes and costumes that could cause you to trip. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
  • Designate a specific route to take and a time to be back home.
  • Never trick-or-treat alone. Go with at least two friends for the entire evening.
  • Carry a flashlight and use it so drivers can see you and you can see hazards on the street as well as other people.
  • Cross only at street corners, never between parked cars, and never diagonally across an intersection.
  • Look in all directions before crossing the street, and obey all traffic signals. Walk! Never run, across the street.
  • Do not accept rides from strangers.
  • Do not take shortcuts through backyards, alleys, or parks.
  • Do not go inside anyone’s home. Remain on the porch/front door area at all times.
  • Make sure an adult inspects treats before eating them.
  • Discard any homemade or unwrapped treats.
