Trick or treating is Wednesday in some communities and Thursday in others, so it's time to start thinking of Halloween safety.
As you head out, one of the biggest things to remember, is to make sure your family is visible.
Parents, get your kids noticed by putting reflectors on their costumes and trick or treat bags.
Don't cross between parked cars, use the cross walk.
Only go to houses with porch lights on and use the buddy system.
Major Mike Brown with the Scott County Sheriff's department says, it's also good to avoid going up to cars, ""There is no reason to go up to a car. Just go to the houses that are offering the candy that have the lighted front porch, those houses. No need to go to cars offering candy."
He adds drivers be on the look out for the kids, because they are probably not looking for you.
