Some towns around Iowa held their “Beggars’ Night” last night, but many send the kids around tonight, on All-Hallows Eve. State public-safety commissioner Kevin Techau has a message for drivers — slow down, be alert. And Techau’s well aware that this holiday’s becoming more popular all the time with folks who’ve outgrown candy. People have made Halloween a efstive occasion, and the public-safety agency’s joined with MADD in reminding people not to drink too much and drive home from a Halloween party. There’ve been more alcohol-related fatalities on Halloween the last couple years than they see on New Years, or even the SuperBowl — and he says folks with party plans had better get a designated driver or not drink much.
