Parents shopping for children's Halloween costumes may now consider borrowing a safety vest from the State Highway Administration to use for trick-or-treat, according to a written release.
As part of the State Highway Administration program "Vests for Visibility," orange safety vests will be available to borrow - on a first-come, first-served basis - from the State Highway Administration's Hagerstown maintenance shop at 18320 Col. Henry K. Douglas Drive, on Friday and Monday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., according to the release.
The shop is off Sharpsburg Pike (Md. 65), behind the Motor Vehicle Administration.
Gary Shank, the shop's resident maintenance engineer, said it has 50 to 100 orange vests to loan to parents, who will have to sign for them and return them as soon as possible.
