Manitoba Public Insurance is passing on a friendly reminder to motorists to use caution tonight as kids hit the street for Halloween.
MPI is asking drivers to keep their eyes peeled for flashing safety red lights.
“We have distributed more than 100,000 safety light-up devices to schools across the province,” said MaryAnn Kempe, MPI’s vice-president of community and corporate relations. “These devices can be clipped onto a child’s jacket or backpack so that they ‘light up the night’ when they’re out after dark.”
The public auto insurer is also encouraging all children to stay on sidewalks or at the side of the road, to travel in groups, to cross at corners and crosswalks, and to stop and look all ways before crossing.
