If You’re Taking Your Children Trick-or-Treating, Make Sure To Play It Safe


The RCMP in New Brunswick would like to remind all of us to use extra caution on Halloween night. Not only will there be increased traffic, but kids will be out.

Along with increased traffic, there will be more people and especially children, walking along the streets and crossing the streets as they go from house to house collecting treats and candy for Halloween.

Cpl. Jullie Rogers-Marsh, of the New Brunswick, reminds all of us that children being dressed up and excited may not pay attention to traffic as they look forward to getting candy at the next house. She added,

“Motorists are asked to slow down and keep a look-out.”


The New Brunswick RCMP would like for all of us to remember that while Halloween is often referred to as ‘trick or treating’, vandalism to any property is not a trick but a crime and it does have consequences.

Police are asking homeowners and those who are outside on Halloween night to call the police if they witness any suspicious or unusual activity.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind before heading out for Halloween activities.

Children and Teenagers:

  • Don’t go into the house for your treats; always wait outside.
  • Don’t eat any treats until an adult has inspected them.
  • Carry a flashlight so you can see where you are going.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks wherever possible. Watch for cars pulling out of driveways and backing up.


  • Drive slowly in residential areas where children are more likely to be trick-or-treating. Reduce your speed and stay alert.
  • Slow down and proceed with caution when entering and exiting driveways or backing up.


  • Keep your home and doorway well lit.
  • Clear sidewalks and pathways for safety.

If you participate in Halloween, have a very safe and fun night. And make sure your friends and family all make it back home the way the left.
