Come Halloween we'll see witches on brooms, witches stirring brew, pumpkins walking, candles burning, headless horsemen, candles walking, ghost running, graveyards, black cats, snakes, lizards, foggy settings, and zombies.
Halloween is a time for scary, fun, and the wildness of the holiday can be confusing for younger children. So be sure young children are escorted for any outside activities day time and nighttime.
Neighborhoods will have children everywhere. In parks, streets, driveways, sidewalks, in trees, behind cars, on bicycles. Be very careful. Adults be very watchful.
Drivers, be alert to people dressed in dark costumes. Many times costumes may not provide adequate eyesight. So never assume the trick or treater seek you and your vehicle.
Drive expecting a person likely will dart out either at a cross walk, or in middle of a block.
Adults after five Halloween parties will be occurring. Although the wise will not have alcholic drinks there is no way to recognize the wise from the foolish drinker. Look out for all drivers. Drivers look out for all pedestrians. Make this a safe Halloween.

Halloween stories from Childcraft, The How and Why Library.
Data from the USDOT shows that fatal collisions between motor vehicles and young pedestrians (under 15 years or age) happen most frequently between 4pm and 8pm, which is the prime trick-or-treating time. Be safe
Have a Happy Halloween!!!
It's good to talk.
