Crosswalk safety

When driving in or around school zones, watch for students and pedestrians crossing the street.

If you have to park near a school, make sure your vehicle is parked at least 15 metres back from marked crosswalks, or 10 metres past marked crosswalks.

Parking too close to a crosswalk can obstruct a driver’s view and make it dangerous for pedestrians.

Do your part and don’t park near marked crosswalks, not even for a minute.
