Bellevue Police Remind You To Be Safe And Be Seen This Halloween

Today, Bellevue Police remind drivers and trick-or-treaters to be safe and be seen this Halloween. Nationally, pedestrians are twice as likely to be struck by vehicles on Halloween than on other holidays. Below are some tips to keep you and your kids safe this Halloween:

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
