Halloween 2020 may have been a little light on trick-or-treaters, but with schools in full session, it’s likely that more trick-or-treaters may once again take to the streets on Halloween this year. And as children may continue take to the streets, their risk of being injured by motorists greatly increases. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that Halloween is consistently one of the top three days for pedestrian injuries and fatalities. “This year, Halloween falls on a Sunday, so trick-or-treaters may potentially be out at any hour of the day,” said Donna Galasso, Assistant Director of Traffic Safety, AAA Northeast.
