PEQUOT LAKES — Pequot Lakes Police Chief Eric Klang asks that motorists and children exercise good Halloween safety. Spend time talking with your children and students on the importance of safety on this night. Pequot Lakes will have a full complement of patrol and reserve officers to ensure a safe night.
The police department offers the following tips:
See and be seen:
• For greater visibility during dusk and darkness, decorate or trim costumes with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car’s headlights. Bags or sacks should also be light colored or decorated with reflective tape. Reflective tape is usually available in hardware, bicycle and sporting goods stores.
• Children should carry flashlights.
• Teach children to never assume they are seen by a vehicle. Small children may be especially difficult to spot in the dark.
• Remind children to look both ways before crossing the street.
