Little witches, ghosts, pirates and superheroes from Michigan will be taking to the streets tonight to play with candy or trickery. And the Michigan State Police have tips to help keep everyone safe during the Halloween celebration.

“Happy Halloween!” Michigan State Police tweeted on Monday. “Have a safe night filled with only treats – no tricks!”

“Let common sense be your guide!” The Ministry of Treasury continued on Twitter. “Talk to the children about where to cross the road so they don’t enter anyone’s home and eat anything until they get home. And if you see something that bothers you, just throw it away. Stay safe, be nice and enjoy your day! “

Prepare your kids for safe and fun tricks or pranks using the following tips from MSP:

  • Go in groups – children under 12 should be supervised
  • Be visible – use glow sticks or flashlights
  • If possible, use pedestrian crossings

While walking

  • Cross the street at the corners
  • Use traffic lights and pedestrian crossings
  • Look left, right, and left one more time before moving on
  • Put down the phone and go up during the crossing
  • Let children learn to make eye contact with the drivers before they ride in front of them
  • Walk on the sidewalks, not the street
  • Watch out for cars that turn or reverse

When are we going

  • Drive slowly and stay alert
  • Spend some time looking for children at intersections, center lanes, and curbs
  • Reverse the vehicle slowly and check three times that no one is around
  • Eliminate distractions
  • There will be a lot of children from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Drive extremely carefully during these hours
  • Stop for all the children and let them pass in front of you to eliminate the risk of them jumping out

Additionally, the Michigan Road Safety Planning Bureau reminded drivers on Monday to “watch out for little ghosts and goblins on Halloween” in a tweet.

“It’s a path for everyone, rules for everyone, and on Halloween” everyone “has a lot of kids,” the agency continued on Twitter.
