Deadly Crash Prompts Cries for School Crossing Guards

The recent death of a grandmother struck by a car while walking with children is sparking concerns for elementary school parents, who believe the area needs a crossing guard.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Could a crossing guard have made a difference in this case?  Maybe maybe not but, pedestrian accidents adjacent to schools are areas where every plausible measure should be taken to prevent traffic collisions. Establishing crossing guards around Los Angeles Unified School District schools are decided by evaluations that are made by the L.A. Dept. of Transportation.  Pedestrian counts, lines of sight, and, unfortunately, tragic accidents like this at any particular location go into the assessment as to whether or not a guard is needed.
