NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WFSB) - Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year, but the holiday can also come with safety concerns for children at night in the dark.

The FDA and local officials provided a helpful list of things families can do to stay safe.

Flashlights or glow sticks can be used to help make yourself more visible to drivers on the road.

Officials also stated that bright and reflective clothing will help keep everyone in the family safe.

Dark clothing, masks, and make-up can be more difficult to see behind the wheel.

Those that plan to drive tonight should plan to slow down and keep their eyes on the road at all times.

Officials say it is also important to check all of their children’s candy to make sure it is safe.

If you are heading out to celebrate tonight, make sure to prioritize safety in the presence of families and trick-or-treaters.
