HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Harrisburg Police created a fun and educational YouTube video to remind trick-or-treaters of ways that they can be safe this year while collecting their Halloween goodies.

Here are some tips from the Harrisburg Police’s YouTube video to help trick-or-treaters stay safe:

  • Wear a bright costume that will make you visible to cars at night.
  • Make sure your costume isn’t too tight or baggy. Your costume could become a safety hazard and cause you to trip.
  • Carry a flashlight or a glow stick.
  • Don’t run.
  • Cross the street at corners.
  • Be sure to look left and right before crossing the street.
  • Keep eye contact with drivers while crossing to make sure they see you.
  • Stay in large groups and stay with your group at all times.
  • Don’t cross the street between parked cars.
  • If YOU are driving, stay alert for trick-or-treaters.
  • Have an adult check candy before consuming it.

“We want you to have fun and keep the peace. A Happy Halloween, from the Harrisburg Police.”
