Although private parties have taken over for the traditional door to door "trick or treats", still many young children will be taking to our neighborhoods for that all familiar chant. Trooper LB. Snider of the Texas Dcpartmeut of Public Safety said, "many disasters can be prevented this Halloween if parents and motorists will use good judgement." Trooper Snidor stated, "small children should be accompanied by older children or adults and trick or treating should be confined to those areas that the parents are familiar witk. Costumes should be light in color, non-flammable and any type of mask used should not prevent the &ild frem being able to see." Parcuts should also instruct their children in some trat safety tips, iusming tbcy look in all dirextions before crossing streets and to walk, ncvcr ten. A flashlight carried by the child can serve as a warning to motorists and children should be instructed to use sidev,Aks, whenever possible. Motorists should use era caution in residential areas and be on the lookont for kids darting into the streets between parked vehicles. Remem- ber, they are excited and pre-occupied with trick or treating. Drivers need to be em-a alert. For those who wish to participate in this u pconng Halloween eve- ning and receive a visit from that little ghost or goblin, it ls a good idea to remember to leave that front porch light on and to imere there areao  in the waikways.
