School Crossing Guards

The School Crossing Guard Program is a vital service to the community. Crossing guards have the authority, under the Highway Traffic Act, to require approaching vehicles to stop for a school crossing. The use of this authority must be displayed in a confident, decisive, understanding and fair manner. 

Important - New Road Rules in Effect

Drivers should take note that the following new rules under the Highway Traffic Act came into effect January 2016.

  • All motorists must stop and yield the whole roadway at pedestrian crossovers and school Crossings where there is a guard displaying a school crossing stop sign.
  • You MUST wait until the entire crosswalk is empty of both pedestrians and the School Crossing Guard.
  • Motorists can NO longer turn left, right or proceed through a crosswalk on the clear half of the roadway.
