Hawaii County promotes Halloween safety with reflective bags

BIG ISLAND (KHNL) - With Halloween around the corner, County of Hawaii's Traffic Division is reminding children to stay safe while trick-or-treating.

The division is giving out 13,000 reflective trick-or-treat bags to school children in kindergarten through fifth grade from October 14 - 19.

The bags are imprinted with safety messages from talking ghosts and a smiling orange pumpkin to remind children to watch for cars, stay in well-lit areas and not to go out alone.

To assure well-lit streets for trick-or-treaters, the County is asking for the community's help in identifying malfunctioning streelights.

To report a malfunctioned streetlight, call the Traffic Divison of Public Works at (808) 961-8341 weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the following information:

* The streetlight pole number.  It is a large silver number located six to seven feet up on the side of the streetlight pole.

* The street or highway name and a well-known landmark.

It may take up to three weeks before malfunctioning streetlights are repaired.
