The Department of Transport and Main Roads provide the service of a Supervised School Crossing.A School Crossing Supervisor is trained to judge the safest time to stop traffic and enter the crossing. A School Crossing Supervisor will stand on the opposite side of the school in the morning and on the school side in the afternoon so that he/she will have clear visibility of oncoming traffic in order to make the safest decision of when to cross children. A School Crossing Supervisor will use two blasts of the whistle to signal when it is safe for pedestrians to cross. Pedestrians are to walk smartly across the road and remain on the pedestrian crossing when using the crossing.As a pedestrian we are reminded to wait behind the "safety toe lines" and not cross until the supervisor gives the signal, that is, two sharp blasts of the whistle. Always encourage your children to use the supervised crossing at your school. Adults are the best role models! Little eyes are everywhere! If you would like more information on this or any other road safety issue, please phone the Department of Transport and Main Roads on 13 QGOV or visit our website.
