Daylight hours will be reduced when Daylight Savings time ends November 3rd. We encourage pedestrian safety. Always cross at crosswalks, be predictable, follow the rules of the road, and most importantly, be visible by carrying a flashlight at night.

Halloween safety is important. Parents and children should wear reflective clothing, always carry a flashlight, and travel in groups that include a parent or other adult. Drivers should avoid neighborhoods during peak trick-or-treating times, and they need to buckle up, avoid distractions and plan ahead for a safe ride home after Halloween celebrations.
