Halloween is less than two weeks away and parents are planning now for how to keep trick-or-treaters safe on the streets. Safe Kids Tulsa Area has some important reminders in its “Be Safe, Be Seen” campaign.

This Halloween, it's important to keep the treat in trick-or-treating and keep your kids from danger.

"Halloween is one of the most fun days of the year for kids, but it can also be one of the deadliest. Children are twice as likely to be injured or killed while walking on Halloween than any other day of the year,” said Beth Washington, supervisor of Safe Kids Tulsa Area.

She said kids under 12 should stick with an adult, but all kids should remember to look before crossing the street, stay on paths or sidewalks, and stay with a group.

Another tip: choose face paint or stickers over a mask that could block vision, and make sure the costume is the right size to avoid trips or falls.

"Especially if your costume is dark-colored or black, we want to add reflective gear to that, sticker to the costume, even if you've got a light-colored costume on, it's dark outside. So having a glow stick or having a reflector or a flashlight, that way cars can see you,” Washington said.

Washington said drivers should be careful on Halloween night, especially from around 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
