Be safe this Halloween

RCMP are urging citizens to be safe and smart this Halloween.

With this year’s Halloween falling on a Saturday, “we’ll probably see an increase in the number of kids, and also the number of motorists out” said Cpl. Joe Duncan of the Kelowna RCMP.

“We would like to get the message out for motorists to be cautious and also for people who are trick or treating to be a little more alert.”

Again with Halloween on Saturday, the older crowd will likely be having Halloween parties so the Kelowna RCMP are reminding party goers to “make some plans, if you’re going to be drinking please ensure you have a safe ride home.”

Other safety tips can be found on the link below.
