It’s nearly Halloween! It’s time for candy, costumes, and carousing. It’s also time for “tweens” and teenagers to make a big bid for their independence. While going Trick or Treating with Mom or Dad is fun for little kids, once adolescents hit a certain age it becomes “uncool.” The alternative is, of course, to go out with groups of their friends – strolling around the neighborhood, collecting candy, pulling pranks, sometimes looking to vandalize property–but hopefully not partaking in too many “tricks.
Whether your child chooses to engage in risky behavior or not, it turns out that Halloween is the most dangerous nights of the year for pedestrians, and – according to studies – is particularly dangerous for teenagers. While young children are prone to bolt into the road in their attempt to get to the next house – and next batch of candy – quickly, teenagers are more prone to distraction. Whether it’s because they’re joking around with their friends, or looking at their cell phones, or perhaps even engaging in risk behaviors – such as using alcohol and other drugs with their friends at parties – teenagers are more apt to pay less attention to their surroundings – and thus, the traffic and the law while they’re out and about on Halloween. While you may be concerned with how late your kids are planning to be out, it turns out that the 6pm-7pm hour is, in particular, the most deadly for distracted teenagers, according to a 2012 report by WNCT.
This year, your parent organization may be looking for alternative activities for students to participate in that will keep them safe from traffic injuries.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Thanks for giving your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been actually evolving. Better technology and enhancements have helped create genuine and fun games. These kind of entertainment video games were not really sensible when the real concept was first being used. Just like other styles of know-how, video games as well have had to grow by means of many generations. This itself is testimony for the fast continuing development of video games.
