TRICK-OR-TREATING ON MONDAY NIGHT. IT’S ONE OF THE MOST FUN NIGHTS OF THE YEAR FOR KIDS.. BUT ALSO ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS. ACCORDING TO SAFE KIDS U-S-A..

ERIN– WHAT LEADS TO SOME OF THE BIGGEST SAFETY ISSUES? # OF COURSE THERE ARE MORE KIDS OUT ON THE STREET– THEY’RE NOT ALWAYS PAYING ATTENTION AS THEY RUN FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE… AND IT’S GETTING DARK OUTSIDE EARLIER– WHICH MAKES IT HARDER FOR DRIVERS TO SEE AS THEY HEAD HOME FROM WORK. EXPERTS SAY THERE’S ALSO A NOTABLE INCREASE IN DRUNK DRIVING INCIDENTS DURING THE WEEKEND BEFORE.. AND ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT– WHICH CAN LEAD TO EVEN MORE ISSUES. AS YOU’RE DRIVING HOME FROM WORK ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT– KEEP IN MIND THERE WILL BE KIDS RUNNING AROUND IN NEIGHBORHOODS.. THEY’LL BE RUNNING FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE AND APARTMENT TO APARTMENT. POLICE ALSO TELL ME THEY SEE MORE KIDS IN PARKING GARAGES AND PARKING LOTS.. AS THEY TRAVEL OTHER PLACES TO TRICK- OR-TREAT. AND FOR TRICK- OR-TREATERS… VISIBILITY IS THEY KEY TO STAYING SAFE.
