WEST CHESTER TWP. (Fox 19) -- The West Chester Police will launch the Halloween blitz this week funded with a grant that allows an increase in officers for traffic enforcement.
The focus will be on stopping impaired drivers, speeders, distracted drivers and those not wearing seat belts.
West Chester police and fire offer these safety tips:
• When choosing a costume, stay away from billowing or long trailing fabric. Choose material that won't easily ignite if it comes into contact with heat or flame. If wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough to see out.
