Acting Houston Police Chief Martha Montalvo reminded motorists to take extra precautions this year.
"Please be aware of your surroundings and slow down," she said recently.
She also recommended that:
*Parents should inspect candy before it is eaten.
*Children should have a light source or reflective clothing
*Children not walk alone while trick or treatingAnd that was it. Thank you, Chief Montalvo, for declining to indulge in the fear-hyping surrounding sex offenders which has become an annual media and law enforcement ritual. Well done.
