School crossing guards play a very important role in our communities, ensuring children travel safely to and from school each weekday.
School crossing guards are legally permitted to stop traffic and assist school children to cross the street by raising their stop sign.
All vehicles are required by law to come to a complete stop and remain stopped until the children and school crossing guard have left the road safely and the crossing guard’s stop sign has been lowered.
Please appreciate their hard work and dedication by being respectful and following their instructions.
Check out the Town of Milton’s video below about school crossings.
