Pols call for more school crossing guards

Following the tragic deaths of two schoolchildren in Queens, State Senator Diane Savino and Queens Assemblymember Michael DanDekker have introduced legislation to require that a school crossing guard be placed on “each corner of a city block on which there is a public or private school with students enrolled in grades K-8, with additional crossing guards on the opposite corners of these intersections if the roadway has four or more traffic lanes.”

“Crossing guards play an essential role in keeping students safe while walking to school, and children also look to them for security on dangerous city streets,” explained Savino.
