Mayor Hannemann Proclaims Halloween Pedestrian Safety Day

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Oahu kids will feel safer and more protected as they trick or treat on Halloween night.

Mayor Mufi Hannemann proclaimed October 31 as Halloween Pedestrian Safety Day to promote the city's "Be Safe, Be Seen" campaign.

"Oahu trick or treaters have experienced no fatal tragedies since the creation of this safety campaign," said Mayor Hannemann.  "The stickers are a simple way to keep our children safe as they walk from house to house.  I urged parents to use the stickers and for drivers to keep a lookout for the reflected stickers."

Campaign officials will distribute 65,000 retro-reflective stickers that children can wear on their clothing, bicycles, shoes or bags to alert drivers.
