(KCEN) -- Halloween is a fun time for kids to dress up and get candy, but it can also be a dangerous time of year.
The chance of a child being hit by a car is about four times higher on Halloween night than any other night of the year, according to the American College of Emergency Physicians.
If your child has a dark-colored costume, add reflective tape so drivers can see your trick-or-treater.
Another common danger is fire. Candles used to light pumpkins can also light costumes on fire.
So make sure your child's outfit is non flammable.
