Have a Safe Halloween By Crossing the Street Safely and Observing Pedestrians

Parents, please remind your kids to cross streets safely this Halloween and to keep an eye on the cars!

Car drivers, please drive safely on Halloween! Children are more than twice as likely to be killed by a car while walking on Halloween than any other night of the year, according to Safe Kids USA. More than 540 kids under age 14 are killed in pedestrian accidents each year. In an analysis of deaths from 2002 to 2006, the group found an average of 2.2 children are killed in pedestrian accidents from 4 to 10 p.m. on Halloween, compared with one child every other evening at the same time. Here is the USATODAY ARTICLE.
