Remember to treat the Crossing Guard stop sign like a construction stop sign). It also requires motorists and pedestrians to obey the directions of the Crossing Guard. (Wait on the sidewalk until pedestrians are told it is safe to cross. Cars to wait when directed by the Crossing Guard until told it is okay to go.)

  • 21950a cvc: Pedestrian right of way in crosswalk: Failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

  • 21950b cvc: Pedestrian yield right of way to vehicles so close as to be hazard: Failure of a pedestrian to yield the right of way to a vehicle approaching that is so close as to be a hazard. (A vehicle is still required to yield to a pedestrian, but a pedestrian can’t run up to the crosswalk and run out in front of the car at the last minute so the car isn’t able to stop.)

  • 21970a cvc: Blocking crosswalks and sidewalks with a vehicle: No person shall stop a vehicle unnecessarily in a manner that causes a vehicle to block a marked or unmarked crosswalk or sidewalk.

The following are traffic laws that relate to the Crossing Guard, as well as some etiquette issues and general traffic laws relevant to the local schools.
