I think it’s pretty amazing that there have been that few deaths on Halloween over the past two years. That’s an incredible decrease since 1990. I think that increased police presence is definitely helping in that regard and keeping people from doing stupid things. Drinking and driving is never a good idea, but on Halloween, there are hundreds of little kids outside who can’t be held responsible when someone makes the mistake of driving drunk. Designated drivers are the best way to have a good time and stay responsible at the same time. With the amount of partying and drinking that is associated with holidays like Halloween, it’s a miracle more people aren’t killed in car accidents on that day. Hopefully, in the future, that number will stay at zero. Parents need to remember that there are going to be people making bad decisions and keep an extra close eye on their kids while trick-or-treating. And drivers need to be extremely cautious while driving so as to not cause harm to the kids around neighborhoods. I think another thing that needs to be considered is teenage drivers. They tend to think they’re invincible and nothing bad will ever happen to them, so making sure that they are obeying traffic laws is a must on Halloween.
