Halloween Safety

Hey everyone, It's that fun and frightening time of year again. I just came across some scary stats that will spook you straight. It has long been warned that Halloween is the most dangerous night of the year for younger pedestrians. Data from the U.S. Government shows there were 115 pedestrians under the age of 18, killed on Halloween night between 1990 and 2010, an average of 5.5 deaths, compared to 2.6 on other days. It seems that the real danger out there is one that should be taught from the earliest age possible. Pedestrian Traffic Accidents are easily avoidable, this lesson should be instilled in a child as soon as they are able to recognize what an automobile, or a large crashing rhinoceros is.

I don't mean to be a downer, but these are the facts, I'm just reporting them. I hope every child and adult has a good time, and lives to trick or treat for years to come. Halloween can be hair-raising, but the real horror show happens November 6. Don't forget to vote! there is no telling how terrifying this election might get.
