What are Crossing Guards?
Crossing guards are like safety superheroes for people who walk to school or anywhere else. They’re the friendly faces you see at street crossings, helping you safely get from one side of the road to the other.
Imagine you’re walking to school, and you come to a busy street. That’s where a crossing guard comes in. They stop the cars, so you and your friends can walk across the street without worrying about traffic.
Crossing guards wear bright vests and sometimes hold stop signs to make sure drivers notice them. They also help you learn about road safety by showing you the right time to walk and when to stop.
These everyday heroes play a crucial role in keeping you and your community safe from traffic accidents. They make sure everyone gets to where they’re going without any accidents happening on the way. So, when you see a crossing guard, remember to give them a friendly wave and say thank you for keeping you safe!
