Cheyenne Police Warn Drivers to Look Out for Trick-or-Treaters

Halloween is just days away, and Cheyenne Police are warning motorists to be on the lookout for trick-or-treaters.

Officer Dan Long says children can act impulsively on Halloween and drivers need to exercise caution.

“Motorists, especially in the neighborhoods, need to remain vigilant, watch their speed and be aware of all the kids out there,” said Long. “The kids are excited, they may be darting into traffic, so it’s always good to be defensive and actually look out for those kinds of things.”

While he can’t remember any children being hit by motorists in recent years, Long says the potential for automobile related accidents with young pedestrians significantly increases on Halloween night.

“You’re going to see huge increases of pedestrians and a lot more traffic,” said Long. “It’s always good for the parents to actually educate their kids on safety, especially with all the traffic.”

Long says extra officers will be out patrolling and doing DUI enforcement to ensure that all ghosts and goblins have a fun and safe Halloween.
