MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization released a list of tips to help make sure that Halloween is a safe and fun night for all.

Drivers are urged to avoid neighborhood shortcuts where trick-or-treaters are likely to be present.

Slow down and make sure to watch for children in the street.

Parents and pedestrians should trick-or-treat in groups and review safety precautions with children.

Costumes should be high visibility and not obstruct children’s views.

And lastly, make sure you have a plan to get home safely. Plan ahead if you think you will be drinking at any parties.
