The number of motor vehicle deaths on Halloween rises an average of 30% to 151 deaths when October 31st falls on a Friday as compared to when Halloween falls on Monday through Thursday. This may happen because two out of three adults ages 18 to 24 plan to throw or attend a Halloween party this year. When you mix children, pedestrians and motorists on the neighborhood roads, danger increases.
Everyone--drivers and pedestrians and parents--need to be extra careful tonight. Don't use cell phones when driving or walking. Distractions is one of the highest reasons for car accidents. Don't drink and drive. Don't dart in between cars or run across the street without looking left-right-left.
Let's get this number lower so no family has to be haunted by a death or serious injury of a loved one. Be safe and be on the lookout for those who are not!
