New Westminster – It’s Halloween once again and Metro Vancouver Transit Police would like to remind you that taking a few precautions, if using transit tonight, will help to ensure that you enjoy this event safely.
Take extra care when choosing Halloween costumes. Costume props, such as replica handguns, hatchets, knives, swords, etc.,
have been one of the biggest concerns over the past few years. Put some thought into your props before stepping on transit.
Ask yourself, could this item be easily mistaken for the real thing? If this item is mistaken for the real thing, how might it put
your safety at risk if the police are called? If in doubt, leave it at home.
Consumption of liquor in public is illegal. This includes all buses, trains, and SeaBus. If you are carrying liquor on transit, ensure
it remains closed until you arrive at your private destination. The fine for consuming liquor in public is $230.00.
