warning to parents (hat the annual
observance of all Saints Day (Hal

"Mcst motorists," the Council
said, "know you can't count on ex

they exercise extra caution when
driving on Halloween.
"Many homeowners, though,
haven't learned their lesson quite
"Homeowners have a moral re
al Halloween. Furthermore, in
sponsigility to keep youngsters safe
many instances homeowners can
be legally responsible if someone is

Follow these suggestions to guard
against a tragedy that may mar a
child's Halloween: ,
Light your porch if there,s any
