KSP: Watch Out for Little Goblins

Date of News Release: 10/26/2012

(Frankfort, KY.) - Halloween. It's time for candy, costumes and trick-or-treating! With many festivities kicking off this weekend, Kentucky State Police wants to make sure parents review safety tips with their little 'goblins'.

Sgt. Rick Saint-Blancard, Spokesperson for KSP, says the agency wants the children to have a fun but safe trick or treating experience.

"Halloween is traditionally a time for children to have fun, but most often it is the children who can be injured by situations that are avoidable," says Saint-Blancard. "Be sure your child's costume does not obstruct their vision and is not so cumbersome where they can trip over it."

"On Halloween evening, we're placing our children in probably some of the most dangerous traffic situations you could imagine," adds Saint-Blancard. "Our children are outside after dark, they walk along and cross unfamiliar streets and they often wear dark colors which are difficult for motorists to see."

Saint-Blancard offers the following tips for parents:

The KSP also wants to remind those driving on Halloween to be extra cautious of our small pedestrians.

For more information about safe trick or treating please contact Kentucky State Police at (502) 782-1780 or www.kentuckystatepolice.org.
