The group says the move would make the day safer and stress free. The petition provides statistics on Halloween safety, saying that 3,800 Halloween-related injures are reported each year, and that 82 percent of parents don't use high visibility aids on their costume.

The group has collected almost 30,000 signatures, triple of its petition goal of 10,000. "Also, for most people, they wouldn't have to worry about working that day or the day following".
