Back to school for crossing supervisors

Horsham Rural City Council is reminding motorists to take extra care and observe road rules around school crossings as school resumes in Victoria next week.

Mayor Robyn Gulline said Council was committed to ensuring the safety of children in and around local schools.

“Be alert, take your time, drive safely and drive within the speed limits, especially around school crossings,” she said.

“Remember that the speed limit around schools and kindergartens is 40 kilometres per hour,” Cr Gulline said.

“With a little extra congestion, it might be worth leaving home five minutes earlier. The biggest concern is ensuring that the return to school is a happy and safe time for our children and motorists.”

Council’s school crossing supervisors will be on the streets from Monday 31 January.
