I've driven the KIIK truck in three parades this year and on at least one occasion it was a scary endeavor. While it was great to see so many our our listeners, the number of folks jumping out in front of our vehicles and others to pick up candy off the street made for a white-knuckle ride.

In response to similar incidents, the city of Dubuque has banned the distribution of candy at this year's Hallowe'en parade. Dubuque Police cite the dangers of folks entering the street to get candy, and even fights over candy amongst parade viewers.

What do you think? Should the handing out (or actually throwing) of candy be stopped at Quad Cities parades? Sound off in the comments.
