The City of Oneonta Police Department and AAA are urging both parents and motorists to be even more alert during Halloween trick-or-treating on Oct. 31.

Oneonta Police Chief Dennis Nayor offers these other safety tips to parents for their children on Halloween:

  • Be bright at night, use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags,wear light colors, and carry flashlights with fresh batteries for extra visibility.
  • Do not wear a costume that obstructs vision. Instead of masks try non-toxic face paint instead.
  • Younger children should always be accompanied by an adult or trustworthy teen.
  • If there are no sidewalks, always walk facing traffic on the left side of the road.
  • Cross streets at corners, not between parked cars or mid-block
