NEXT MONDAY is Halloween, and you’ll likely see elsewhere in this week’s issue some helpful tips from Orangeville Police on making it a safe one.
The weather outlook is promising, with no rain or snow currently in the forecast, so there’ll certainly be lots of trick-or-treaters on the streets this last Monday before the end of Daylight time.
Perhaps the best suggestion on the police list is that costumes should be visible to motorists at night, preferably with reflective arm bands.
We also like the idea of either not wearing a mask or at least making sure you have good vision through the eye holes.
However, the most important warning must be to motorists: to drive slowly through residential areas and prepare for the possibility that some kids will try crossing the street in front of you.
And let’s hope it won’t be an occasion for any vandalism.
