DOT: Watch out for trick-o-treaters Halloween weekend

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)--Transportation officials are urging drivers to keep an eye out for trick-or-treaters this Halloween weekend.

The Iowa Department of Transportation says drivers need to watch out for little ghosts and goblins along streets and intersections.

The Iowa DOT says nine pedestrians were injured from October 28-31st last year. In 2008, two pedestrians were killed.

A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows elementary and middle school aged children were four times more likely to be killed by a vehicle on Halloween when compared to other nights of the year.
