Help Keep Troy Safe for Trick-or-Treaters This Halloween

Autumn is in the air in Troy, MI. The leaves are changing, and that means you're mournfully swapping out your Jaguar's high-performance summer tires for winters. The handling might not be as sporty, but you'll be glad to have them when the snow starts.

Halloween is just a few days away.

If you have children, October 31st is the culmination of weeks of costume planning, and running your kids through the rules of trick-or-treating—look both ways before you cross the street, don't wander into unfamiliar neighborhoods, carry a flashlight. If you don't have kids, there are still steps you can take to help make our community safer on one of the most dangerous nights of the year for traffic collisions with pedestrians.

  • Reduce speed. Halloween is not the night for joy riding—drive at least 5 mph under the posted speed limit.
  • Turn on your headlights, even before sunset. This will make you more visible to pedestrians.
  • Scan the sidewalk for children. They may be wearing dark costumes, making them difficult to see, and may dart into the street unexpectedly.
  • Don't drink and drive. If you're attending a Halloween party, have a designated driver or use a taxi.
