PHOENIX (AP) - Transportation officials are advising drivers to plan for longer-than-normal Friday’s afternoon commutes because of Halloween.

The state Department of Transportation says many commuters change their regular routines and hit the road early when Halloween falls on a weekday as they try to get home for trick-or-treating and parties.

The department’s advice includes starting a trip home earlier to avoid the worse traffic conditions, which tend to build between 4-6 p.m.

Another piece of advice is to be vigilant in residential neighborhoods where costumed children might not be careful while crossing streets.
