Attention drivers and pedestrians! Do you know the rules of the road? We all play an important role in keeping our community safe and this includes safety around school crosswalks. When there is an adult school crossing guard in the crosswalk with their stop sign, drivers must stop before reaching the crosswalk and remain stopped until all pedestrians, including the crossing guard, have cleared the roadway. The fine for failing to stop for a crossing guard is $150 to $500 and three demerit points. Pedestrians play an important part in keeping our communities safe as well, by obeying crossing guards and at signalized crossings, only crossing when the pedestrian walk signal is displayed. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our school communities safe!
