Every fall as students return to school, so do crossing guards who help them get there safely. The crossing guard is an important part of the education system helping young children, teenagers, and even college students cross public roadways.
The standard stop/slow or stop/stop paddle is made of .080” aluminum and weighs between three and five pounds, depending on the size (18” or 24”). And after several hours of managing pedestrians in all types of weather conditions and climates, the paddle can feel much heavier than 10 pounds.
