Is it too distracting for crossing guards to wave at passers-by while working?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on January 28, 2006
“I don’t think a blanket no-waving policy is necessary. I would hope our crossing guards would be capable of using their own discretion.”
“I think it would be more of a distraction for the drivers than for the crossing guard because it draws their attention away from the children around them.”
“No, I don’t think it’s distracting. I think it’s just people being friendly.”
“Yeah, it probably is. It can give a mixed signal to the traffic.”
