It's not a safe crossing space if everyone is too busy high-5'ing instead if watching for cars!
The cars are stopped at the crossing. If the crossing guard has their hand up & the kids high 5 as they walk past, there's no danger at all. It's not like they're stopping for a thumb wrestle in the middle of the road.
But isn't that what lollipop people do? If they see kids coming they walk out into the middle of the road with their lollipop and then only walk back when the kids have crossed.
There's probably plenty of things the article didnt mention and I bet this is one of them. They probably wanted to get people riled up ("oh we're becoming a nanny state") and mentioning that the High-5's were done while on the road could detract from that.
Lol, no that's not what they do. At a school they have so many kids coming so while they are overseeing safety they are waiting for several children to be there to cross, they are waiting for a 'good' time to cross and trying not to hold up traffic as much as possible.
The article, news reports etc. Mentioned several times it was an issue of possible inappropriate touching, not traffic safety.
