Keep it safe out there for Halloween
NORTH BEND, Ore. -- Police say kids are twice as likely to get hit and killed by a car on Halloween than any other night of the year.
Using a light to make yourself visible, like the one on your phone, could save your life.
Jason Griggs with the North Bend Police Department says your outfit is key as well. "Make sure they wear bright clothing, if that's not convenient we ask them to wear things like reflective strips or possibly glow sticks that make them visible, not only for their safety, but also for the people driving around in the neighborhood."
You might also consider a safe and drier alternative: a mall.
Kelsey Mulkey is the assistant mall manager at Pony Village, and she says they will be going all out for Halloween. "We're giving out a thousand cupcakes, we have the haunted house going on from 6 to midnight, also by the North Bend Police Officers Association, we have a costume contest," she said. "All of our vendors are out and about in the mall passing out candy."
