LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Halloween is a fun night especially for kids. But, it is also one of the most dangerous.
That's why Clark county is promoting the Inside by 9 safety campaign.
The county is discouraging trick-or-treating after 9 p.m. Residents are also being asked to turn off their porch lights at that time to discourage children from knocking on their doors.
Every year around Halloween, we cover tragedies on the road.
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, children are twice as likely to get killed on Halloween, than any other day.
Six years ago, 6-year-old Brazyl Ward was almost a statistic. She was hit by a car while trick-or-treating.
Last Halloween, this is what Brazyl and her mother Tiffany said when we spoke with them. "I just don't want anyone else to feel the pain that our family has felt. We are very blessed that she is here, thank god but there are some people that did not have the same outcome."
So no one else has to go through the pain.
Clark County advises families trick or treating to:
- Get your night started early
- Never trick or treat alone
- Cross only at corners and look both ways
- Only visit homes with porch lights on
