Halloween is upon us and while it is a time of treats and festivities for many, parents, drivers, pedestrians, drivers and cyclists alike have to be aware that it is a time to be concerned for safety.
680 News featured a newscast about Halloween safety. From increased pedestrians, to Halloween parties and possible drunk drivers, it is a night to be on high alert for car accidents.
Remember, if you are hosting a party and serving alcohol, you are responsible for ensuring your guests get home safely. Offer your guests a place to stay. Do not encourage drinking and driving. Make sure designated drivers are arranged or taxis are called.
Be on the lookout for those trick-or-treaters crossing streets, because costumes may be dark, and some areas may not be well lit.
An average of 4 people are killed in impaired driving related accidents daily in Canada.
