Matt Hurlston of Ray White Carnegie: Child safety at crossings high priority

By Matt Hurlston

When it comes to looking after the future generations, there's nothing more important than ensuring that their safety at places like school is looked after. This also includes the walk to and from the institution, which the Glen Eira City Council hopes to increase in the near future.

According to the council's Walking Strategy, the target is to increase the number of children walking to and from school by 10 per cent, with the importance of school crossings and child safety near roads becoming a key concern. 

The council's manager of transport planning Terry Alexandrou said that drivers are being asked to take more care around crossings, with pedestrians and cyclists being more vulnerable in these instances. 

"Research shows that a pedestrian only has a 20 per cent chance of surviving a collision with an impact speed of 60 kilometres per hour, whereas this increases to 80 per cent when the impact speed is 40 kilometres per hour," said Mr Alexandrou in a 18 August statement. 

Motorists are reminded to wait for children to completely clear the crossing, unlike some where vehicles may proceed onces the person has passed the car. This is to keep the safety of children living in Carnegie real estate a top priority heading forward.
