In 2012, around 76,000 were hurt in accidents such as these.

Tips for having a safe Halloween

There is no question that Halloween is a holiday enjoyed by people of all ages throughout the state of Wisconsin.

There is no question that most people would say that children are one of the greatest treasures in life. Accordingly, parents and caretakers go out of their way to make sure they are kept safe on a regular basis. Because it is impossible for a parent or caretaker to be with a child all of the time there are situations where one has to hope that either others will look out for their child or the lessons passed along to a child will stick. One of the situations where that could arise is when children are crossing the street.
