Perhaps the greatest responsibility for school pedestrian safety lies with the individual driver. Pedestrians have the right-of-way in a crosswalk, marked or not, and the driver must stop to allow pedestrians to cross. Motorists must exercise extreme caution in school zones and along the route to school.
A student’s personal responsibility for his or her own safety as a pedestrian or bicyclist cannot be over-emphasized. The child must understand and follow the instructions given for walking and biking to and from school. Children develop life-saving pedestrian and bicycle skills and awareness through practice under the supervision of educated adults who model safe pedestrian and bicycle behaviors
