AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) urges drivers to use extra caution in areas where children are likely to be gathering this Halloween, and asks parents and trick-or-treaters to do their part to stay safe.

Drivers should expect and be prepared for children and adults walking along streets and in neighborhoods. DPS offers the following tips to help ensure the safety of Texans on our roadways during Halloween:
· Don’t drink and drive. (Designate a driver or take a cab.)
· Eliminate distractions, including the usage of mobile devices.
· Slow down; and further reduce speeds in bad weather, construction areas and heavy traffic.

Parents can also check the Texas Public Sex Offender Registry for offenders in their neighborhood at: https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/SexOffender/PublicSite/Index.aspx.

Texans can also put safety first by using these tips:
•Look both ways before crossing roadways, and always walk; don’t run.
•Cross the roadway at intersections and crosswalks.
•Travel in groups with adult supervision.
•Do not enter the cars or homes of strangers, and avoid homes without visible porch lights.
•Make sure children know their home phone number and how to call 911 or their local emergency number in case they have an emergency or become lost.
•Take all treats home for an adult to inspect before eating anything, and never eat unwrapped candy.

Individuals should also keep the following tips in mind when selecting a costume:
•Avoid toy guns and knives -- they could be mistaken for the real thing.
•Wear costumes that are light in color, or place reflective material on the costume, so drivers can see you.
•Consider using face paint instead of masks to allow for better visibility and peripheral vision.
•Carry a flashlight.
