HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS
- Be bright at night; use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags, and carry flashlights and glow sticks for extra visibility.
- Don’t wear a costume that obstructs vision. Use makeup instead of a mask.
- Wear a costume you can walk in – comfortable footwear and nothing that drags on the ground.
- Work one side of the street at a time, crossing only at corners and crosswalks. Stay out of the roadway!
- Younger children should always be accompanied by an adult or trustworthy teen; older children should be given boundaries and should communicate with their parents along the way.
- If driving trick- or- treaters on their rounds, don’t forget to use appropriate car seats, and have children enter and exit the vehicle from the passenger side.
AAA suggests the following tips for motorists on Halloween:
- Try to avoid cutting through residential areas where Trick-or-Treaters are likely to be present.
- Obey all traffic signs and signals, and travel with extreme caution in residential areas.
- Scan far ahead and watch attentively for children who may be excitedly running from house to house or crossing at unexpected places.
- Avoid driving distractions, even after traditional trick-or-treat hours – older children and teens may be out without adult supervision.
- And it goes without saying, if you’re attending an adult Halloween party where alcohol is being served, be sure to have a designated driver!

New York Safe Act of 2013
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently signed legislation, called the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 (NY SAFE ACT), to give New York State the most comprehensive gun laws in the nation, which will keep guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous mental health patients and ban high capacity magazines and assault weapons. This bill does not affect rifles and shotguns used by traditional sportsmen and hunters. Information and Frequently Asked Questions about the NY SAFE ACT
