Back to School Safety - Crossing Intersections
District 62 has eleven schools throughout Des Plaines. Children are found walking to and from these schools throughout the entire school year. Crossing guards are present to help children cross the streets safely. In Des Plaines there are approximately 41 schools crossing zones where crossing guards are stationed. Crossing guards wear a traffic safety vest and hold a portable stop sign making it easy to identify them. Everyone must obey his or her lawful commands. State law requires full obedience to crossing guards, equal to that of a police officer. Any person convicted of violating this law is subject to a mandatory fine of $150.00.
