School Crossing Guards

August is here and with the new school year just beginning, it’s important that motorists pay special attention to crosswalks and school crossing guards outside of local schools.  Although a large number of students ride the bus or are dropped off at school, many still walk daily.

Crossing guards direct pedestrian crossings and traffic flow in order to ensure the safety of children by staying alert to traffic hazards.  Crossing guards typically work one hour before and one hour after school hours and are essential in assisting students in getting to school safely.

Please remember to use caution when going through a school zone and obey all traffic signals, speed limits and crossing guard directions. In the event that a crossing guard is unavailable to work, a Bowling Green Police Department employee will be monitoring the school zone.
