Halloween Risks

Statistics show the number of fatal wrecks is higher when Halloween falls on a weekend.  The American Automobile Association says federal numbers show motor vehicles fatalities increase an average of 30 percent and nearly half of those are alcohol-related.  Triple-A urges parents to dress children in bright reflective costumes or add reflective tape to costumes or treat buckets. For adults headed to parties, Triple-A suggests a designated driver and traveling routes that avoid residential areas.  Now that Halloween night is here, it's time to take make sure your pets are safe.  The Humane Society reminds pet owners that the best place for pets is a safe, quiet spot.  Cats - black ones in particular - often fall victim to pranksters.
