Today (MON) is Halloween, and little ghosts and goblins will be out in droves tonight. And while it can be an exciting time for kids and adults, it can also make everyone less cautious. Children are twice as likely to be hit by a car on Halloween as during any other time of year. The Minnesota Safety Council’s Erin Peterson says kids under age 12 should be accompanied by a parent or older child. Trick-or-treaters should cross streets at the corner and walk on sidewalks or paths if possible. And Peterson says drivers should slow down, be extra alert — and put down the cell phone and eliminate all other distractions.
