Halloween can be night when adults attend parties.
Make sure to designate a driver prior to drinking too much.
Never get behind the wheel of a car when you have had too much to drink.
Never get in the car when the person driving has had too much to drink.
Remember as well that pedestrians will be out and about. Children will be flocking through neighborhoods waving to friends, knocking on doors -- and darting into roadways, running across driveways and otherwise geting caught up in the excitement.
Be extra alert if you get behind the wheel.
And take the time to remind your children about Halloween safety with the following poem:
Princesses, goblins, angels, and ghosts
We want you to practice safety the most
So choose a route and bring a flashlight
Brighten the way of this so called fright night
Pay attention to cars as the drivers do stare
Instead of the road, at costumes you wear
And don't forget the rule for crossing the street
Look left, right, left before moving your feet
Stay with your group, no wandering alone
And never enter into any stranger’s home
Then when you've returned from all trick or treating
Have an adult check your goodies before you start eating
Safety should always be first on your mind
That way you’ll be sure to have a grand time
Safety is the California Highway Patrol scream
For a fun, memorable, happy Halloween
