According to the organization, Safe Kids USA, children are more than twice as likely to be killed by a car while walking on Halloween night, than at any other time of the year.
This Halloween, be very careful when driving at night, especially in residential areas. Exercise caution as trick-or-treaters are running about. Look for children darting in between parked cars. Be extra careful when entering or exiting alleyways and driveways. Watch for children in dark clothing during the later hours of the night. Be sure to stay off of your cellphones and avoid any distractions. Nothing is scarier than putting children’s safety at risk. Be alert and stay safe this Halloween.
