Highway administration offers vests for Halloween
Once again, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration announces its annual Vests for Visibility pro- gram, in which the agency lends reflective vests to children and their chaperones for Halloween trickor-treating.
Parents can pick up vests between Monday, Oct. 29, through Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Prince Frederick SHA maintenance shop at 100 Hallowing Point Road. The reflective vests will be issued on a first-come, firstserved basis and need to be returned by Friday, Nov. 2, a press release states.
SHA also asks both drivers and pedestrians to use caution, particularly during peak trick-or-treating hours of 4 through 9 p.m.
For more information on Vests for Visibility, call the local highway maintenance shop at 410-5351748.
