Take Safety Precautions
Governor Dannel P. Malloy said, "While Halloween should be a fun night, we must do everything possible to ensure it’s a safe one. Parents and children are strongly urged to follow these safety tips offered from the State Police, and we are also asking drivers to use extreme caution, especially after sunset. By taking these precautions, we can help ensure that Connecticut's youngest residents enjoy the festivities."
“As always, our top priority is to keep all residents safe. On a busy night like Halloween, we urge drivers and pedestrians to exercise caution, watch carefully and beware of costumed youngsters dashing around the neighborhood,” said Dora B. Schriro, Commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.
State Police Colonel Brian Meraviglia reminds all drivers to be aware of pedestrians on Halloween night.
“Our Troopers will be out in force this Saturday night, ensuring safety and enforcing laws. I urge all Connecticut residents to please obey all traffic laws on Halloween and every day. This is a fun and scary night, but safety must come first,” Colonel Meraviglia said.
