Halloween Road Safety

Be Alert and Follow the Rules of the Road this Halloween

As another spooktacular Halloween approaches, Ontario is reminding drivers and pedestrians to be aware and stay safe while trick-or-treating.

Excited ghosts, goblins and ghouls are roaming the streets after dark on Halloween and may forget   rules. Drivers are reminded to follow these safety precautions:

  • Be alert and slow down when you see trick-or-treaters
  • Avoid any distractions and put down the phone
  • Always keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel
  • Yield to crossing pedestrians, especially when turning.

Parents are encouraged to remind their trick-or-treaters to:

  • Be seen -- wear costumes with bright fabrics or reflective tape and carry a flashlight with fresh batteries
  • Be alert and cautious of their surroundings, especially on roadways
  • Always walk -- do not run from house to house
  • Walk on the sidewalks whenever possible, don't jaywalk and always cross at pedestrian crossovers or marked intersections
  • If a sidewalk is unavailable, walk on the left side of the street facing traffic.

Review safety precautions before heading out to trick-or-treat, including pedestrian and traffic safety rules.



  • Motor vehicle collisions are the main cause of death for Canadian children.
  • Distracted driving is a leading cause of collisions on Ontario roads. According to 2013 collision statistics, one person is injured in a distracted driving collision every 30 minutes.
  • Drivers caught talking, texting, typing, dialing or e-mailing using a hand-held cellphone and other hand-held communication and entertainment device face a fine of up to $1,000 and receive three demerit points upon conviction.

Be Safe
