Halloween is a thrill for kids - who wouldn't want to dress up in the costume of their favorite cartoon character or hero and scour the neighborhood for candy? We can all remember our own trick-or-treating adventures, ones that were fun and safe under the watchful eye of our parents. Despite children's excitement, though, today we have to exercise even more caution than our parents did. There's a good reason for such an approach; tragedy strikes hard on October 31st. According to research data, children are twice as likely to be hit and killed by cars on Halloween than on any other day of the year.
