Halloween night is something children look forward to for obvious reasons, but trick-or-treating can be risky if they're not careful and if parents don't enforce measures to ensure their child's safety.

Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.

Children should always trick or treat with an adult or older sibling. Keep them out of the reach of small children and away from flammable materials.

Always walk on sidewalks or paths.

Watch for cars that are turning or backing up.

Walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic if there are no sidewalks. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings. Drivers need to expect that kids will be darting in and out of the street.

Sheriff Leon Lott is sharing some safety tips for parents and kids.

Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision.

Encourage children to use face paint and/or make-up rather than hoods, wigs or masks that can block vision. Purchase only ones that are labeled flame-resistant or flame-retardant. "Trying to stick to your neighborhoods or other neighborhoods where friends or family are familiar with them as well", is what officer Niemeyer recommends when choosing where to trick-or-treat.

Canfield Police says Halloween is one of their favorite times in the community because they love to interact with the kids and parents.

Terre Haute - As all of the ghouls and goblins finish up their costumes in preparation for the big night it is important that as they are collecting their candy to stay safe. Many kids now wear glow-in-the-dark bracelets or necklaces or carry fluorescent sticks and swords that help drivers see them in the street.

Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Costumes should allow children to easily see and move about freely.

Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. "If you think that they are simply out trick-or-treating, let it go", says Adamson. Candy can be dropped off between 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Wednesday at St. Cloud Toyota.
