TBT reminds all drivers to be extra careful tonight and watch for pedestrian ghosts, ghouls and goblins. Parents are urged to make sure their children are visible. An assortment of glow sticks and other light-up devices are available at area Dollar Tree stores and can be a good way to light up your little monster.
Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
