Today a familiar sight around schools is the School Crossing
Supervisor. Their role in the school community is to ensure that the students
who cross the road at the children’s crossing do so in a safe manner.
Childrencrossing flags are displayed
near crossings around schools before and after school hours when children are
crossing the road. A children's crossing may be supervised.
School crossing supervisors use a hand-held
stop sign to stop traffic and allow children to cross the road safely.
the children’s crossing flags are on display, you must stop at the stop bars
and give way to any to pedestrians on or entering the crossing (regardless of
whether a crossing supervisor is present or not).
must wait until all pedestrians have crossed the road and the crossing
supervisor has returned to the footpath.
you need to stop or park (picking up or dropping of passengers) your vehicle
must be no closer than 20 metres on the approach side and 10 metres on the
departure side of the crossing. These “NO STOPPING” areas are clearly marked
with a no stopping sign.
road safety is everybody’s business.
