Trick-or-treating is an annual highlight for most New Jersey children. This year girls dressed as Wonder Woman and boys dressed as Minecraft Creepers will run down the sidewalk, eager to fill their bags with candy. Children get excited, running into the streets in loose-fitting costumes.
Every parent feels a little hesitation allowing their children trick-or-treat on their own. Parents worry because they know that children are not the only ones out on Halloween night. Halloween parties are common among teens and adults. Streets can be dangerous, running the risk of speeding or distracted drivers.
