The Florida LTAP Center, in partnership with FDOT, presents this webinar on “The Florida School Crossing Guard Training Program – Improving Safe Transportation for Our Most Vulnerable Road Users.”

Wouldn’t you agree that a crossing guard’s presence makes walking and biking to school more feasible and safer for students?

Florida is a leader among states in developing its crossing guard uniform training guidelines and administering the Florida Department of Transportation’s legacy train-the-trainer program. Local crossing guard agency programs in Florida are some of the best in the nation.

Statewide guidelines and training requirements for crossing guards create safer school crossings for walkers and bicyclists. This in turn stimulates walking/biking in communities; transportation, in general, becomes more accessible to a broader range of individuals, and the entire community is enhanced. Crossing guard programs are a part of a pedestrian-friendly community.
