Abstract
From 1993 to 2008, 14 New Jersey adult crossing guards were killed when struck by motor vehicles while at work. An additional 121 adult crossing guards suffered injuries serious enough to require full days away from work as a result of motor vehicle-related accidents. New Jersey state law mandates that crossing guards receive training (a minimum of two hours of classroom and 20 hours of supervised field training) and use required personal protective equipment.
