Hawthorne NJ, Hawthorne Police Traffic Bureau, sent us a School Zone Safety message that applies to all towns, cities, villages ,townships and boroughs , “When approaching or using a school crosswalk, the rules are different. At a traditional crosswalk, drivers can proceed once pedestrians clear the crosswalk on the opposite side of the opposing lane of travel. However, drivers need to wait at an active school crosswalk unit. It is clear of children and the crossing guard, keeping in mind the children and crossing guard do not always end on the same side. Often, the crossing guard has to return back into the intersection to continue helping other students at the next crossing interval. It is crucial that drivers are aware of this process and make sure the crossing guard is clearly out of the intersection before proceeding.
