Happy Halloween!

About the Cover :

—Nationally, more than 41 million children will be out trick-or-treating between October 25 - 31.Here are some facts to help make families more aware of Halloween Hazards and help keep trick-or-treaters safe. Risk #1 Pedestrian-Car Collisions: Child pedestrians are four times more likely to be killed on Halloween than on any other evening of the year. Parents need to accompany children, make sure they are visible, and model safe pedestrian behaviors themselves. Risk #2 Non-Intersection Crossings: Well over half of the Halloween pedestrian fatalities involving children occur at non-intersections, suggesting that mid-block crossings, darting out from between parked cars and other unexpected crossing behaviors may have contributed to their deaths. Risk #3 Drunk Driving: Drunk driving over Halloween has surpassed drunk driving on New Year's. On Halloween night in 2010, 41% of all highway fatalities were alcohol-related. Alternatives to Impaired Driving: • If you have consumed alcohol at a Halloween Party, find a sober driver for a safe ride home. Call a cab or a friend for a ride or sleep it off where you are. • If you are hosting a Halloween Party, make sure to take keys at the door and have sober designated drivers available. Be sure to provide nonalcohol drinks as well. Remember: “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.” Risk #4 Falls: Falls are one of the leading causes of injury on Halloween night. While it is important to make sure costumes are "fall-proof," it is also important to clear walkways, yards and driveways of tripping hazards in advance and to carry a flashlight. Risk #5 Burns and Eye Injuries: Medical professionals cite an increase in eye and burn-related injuries on Halloween night. Paying attention to children's costumes, using face paint instead of masks and using "soft" toy weapons can help reduce these risks. I encourage everyone to have a “safe” and Happy Halloween!

The air is nippy and the leaves are turning to their beautiful fall colors. So it’s time to take the whole family on one last weekend getaway before the winter. See page 5 for road trip tips.
