Electronic School Crossing
Beginning the 2013-2014 school year, a new piece of equipment will be utilized at the crosswalk on E Spring St near the Rock River Intermediate School. This unit is called a Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB), and will replace the crossing guard at that location. RRFB's are user-activated amber LED lights that supplement warning signs at uncontrolled intersections and crosswalks. RRFB's utilize an irregular flash pattern, similar to emergency vehicle flashers.
This unit and area will be monitored, patrolled, and strictly enforced by officers. If these units are received well, additional units may be utilized in other high traffic pedestrian locations in the community in the future.
Please drive safely, and keep our children safe.
