STAY SAFE ON HALLOWEEN
It's October 31 - which is Halloween.
SA Police has some safety tips:
*Children ‘trick or treating’ should be accompanied by a trusted, responsible person.
*Children and young people should walk, not run, when going from house to house.
*They need to obey traffic rules, watch out for cars, use proper road crossings where available and watch out for younger children.
*Children should stay on the footpath at all times. If there is no footpath, walk single file on the right hand side facing traffic, or reconsider allowing the children to use that route.
*Take extra care when crossing roads as children may find it hard to see so well in a costume.
*If using a skateboard, roller blades or bikes, a helmet must be worn
*After knocking on the door and saying ‘trick or treat’ children or young people should stay at the front door and not enter the person’s house, even if invited inside while the person looks for treats. They should also leave immediately if asked to do so
*Children and young people should be told any trick must not cause harm, fear,
damage or be abusive in any way.
*Be respectful of other members of the community as not everyone celebrates Halloween.
