Count Dracula hitting streets for ‘Operation Transylvania’ to keep kids safe
LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Police officers in Colorado are getting creative this Halloween and having some fun, while working to make sure kids are safe.
Costumes are part of “Operation Transylvania” to promote traffic safety.
The program coordinator said if drivers aren’t paying enough attention to see a 6-foot Count Dracula, they would probably miss children as well.
Officials said twice as many kids can be killed while crossing the street on Halloween than any other time of the year.
The idea was taken from a California town that sent a gingerbread man to the streets with the same mission earlier this year.
