Halloween Just Got a Little More Scary
On Halloween, 43 percent more people get hit by cars than on any given night. Some of the festivities that make it such a great holiday also make it more dangerous: There is limited visibility since it's dark; masks block peripheral vision; many people drink and party; and street safety is often neglected. Research from the University of British Columbia suggest that the streets need to be made safer for people not in cars. (via The Verge)
Halloween Safety Tips
Everyone wants to have a good night of tricks and treats on Halloween, but there are some things to keep in mind when you go out. For pedestrians: only cross the street on corners and walk on designated paths; add reflectors to kids' costumes and bags; and opt for face paint instead of a mask for better visibility. When driving around, reduce distractions and keep your eyes on the road—and always keep a slow pace in local neighborhoods. (via Safe Kids)
