October 31 is the most dangerous day of the year for child pedestrians.  So please be careful if you are driving or trick-or-treating this evening.

Vehicles cause more child injuries on Halloween than any other reason.  If you are driving, be hyper-vigilant.  A child can be excited about the candy they will get at the next house and forget to look before crossing the street.  Emphasize safety before you leave the house and keep your children close to you.

A child in a mask running across a yard will have difficulty seeing where they are going.  Keep your children on sidewalks and driveways to avoid obstructions.  Keep your yard and walkways well-lit so people can see where they are going.  Also make sure that costumes are trimmed and hemmed to avoid tripping.
