|A Message from the Chief
Now, thousands of children are walking to and from school and school buses -
many for the first time, everyone who drives has a responsibility to be especially
careful during this busy time for school aged youngsters.
Hundreds of young children are killed each year in collisions with motor vehicles,
and thousands more are severely injured. Children are at a greater risk during the
back-to-school period because they tend to be thinking of other things rather
than watching for vehicles.
We as the Police Department are urging parents to teach their children some
simple safety tips before they head back to school. They are as follows:
- Look all ways before crossing the street
- Cross only at the corners
- Obey Police Officers, crossing guards and traffic signals
- Watch for turning cars
- Be especially alert in bad weather
- Play away from traffic
On a school bus:
Yellow lights mean the bus is going to stop. Slow down!
Red lights mean students are getting on or off the bus. Stop all Lanes, All directions.
-Chief Michael P. Cerone
Steady White Light
Both of these signs mean that you may walk. However, first you should:
•Look to the left, right and left again.
•Watch for turning cars.
•When it is safe, leave the curb and cross the street.
Flashing Orange Lights
Both of these "DON'T WALK" signals, when they are flashing, mean to use caution.
•If you are in the street, finish crossing the street.
•If you have not started crossing the street, stay on the curb.

Steady Orange Light
These "DON'T WALK" signals, when the orange lights are steady, mean STOP.
•Stay on the curb.
•If a button is provided, push the button and wait for the "WALK" signal.
