School Districts: Crossing Guard Safety - SS7025AE (15 min)
The goal? The safety of children. A Crossing Guard’s job is protecting them. What could be more important than that? In 2008, one-fifth (20%) of all children between the ages of 5 and 9 who were killed in traffic crashes were pedestrians. Roadway crossings are complex, with many things to pay attention to. Children have neither the experience, nor the ability to understand the complexity of an intersection. Their only experience with roadways may be crossing them or being driven on them. This program is designed to help the new or experienced crossing guard understand the regulations relating to traffic safety and how to safely help children cross the street.
