Pedestrian education in Auburn

This can be a tricky intersection for about a half hour after Auburn Elementary School lets out at 3 pm. Lots of cars, parents, kids walking, bicycle riding, a crossing guard who’s periodically ignored or almost run over. Safe Kids California asked me to spend two afternoons at the crosswalk, reminding students how to safely cross the street even when a crossing guard is present.


It’s hard to tell if my presence, my words, or the goodies I passed out had an impact or not. But we continue to teach, don’t we?
