Horsham's crossing supervisors, along with many others from fellow Victorian cities, are wearing black armbands today, in honor of a much-loved Wodonga Council crossing guard Brian Beach who was fatally hit early this month. His funeral in Wondonga is today.

The incident, which took place during school pick-up hours, is yet another reminder of the importance to adhere to school zone speed limits, for everyone's safety. While it's well known that school zones are limited to 40km/h during pick-up times, it is very important to be familiar with all of the rules:

▪Stop if a child or adult is about to cross or is crossing, even if there is no crossing supervisor
▪Stop if a hand held “Stop” sign is displayed
▪Only proceed when all children and adults, including the supervisor, are clear of the crossing
▪Approach at a speed slow enough to stop safely, if necessary
▪Do not overtake a vehicle stopping or stopped at the crossing.

As a community, we can help ensure that everyone gets home safely.
