Nationally, pedestrians are twice as likely to be struck by vehicles on Halloween than on other holidays, Bellevue police reported Tuesday. Below, officers have offered some tips to keep families trick-or-treating safe this Halloween night.

Pedestrians can walk safely by:

  • Crossing the street only at lighted intersections, crosswalks, and at traffic signals
  • Looking both ways before crossing the street
  • Using sidewalks, if available
  • Watching for cars turning or backing up
  • Wearing bright or reflective clothing

Drivers can do their part by:

  • Watching out for kids crossing the street
  • Slow down and be especially alert
  • Refrain from any distractions in the vehicle, including electronic devices
