Toolbox to Address Safety and Operations on School Grounds and Public Streets Adjacent to Elementary and Middle Schools in Iowa
The Center for Transportation Research and Education at Iowa State University has released a report that examines transportation safety and operational issues at existing elementary and middle school sites in Iowa. The report includes solutions designed to address frequently observed safety problems such as students crossing at unmarked crosswalks, unloading and loading students on the street side, inattentive student safety patrols, and illegal parking. The report also suggests that regular communications between school officials, traffic engineers, law enforcement, parents, and school transportation personnel are critical to promote safe operations within school zones.
