School Safety: Pick-Up and Drop-Off Plans that Work

This paper describes that while congestion at schools may last only 10-15 minutes each morning and afternoon, it creates a period when student safety is often compromised and both school staff and parent frustration levels run high. This paper outlines some of the key elements of a safe and efficient school traffic plan. Ideas to organize the traffic and methods to control and enforce the plan are offered as are innovative techniques employed by schools in California. Examples of successful plans are discussed to give other schools ideas of the types of improvements and strategies that might be applied to their situation.
