The stories this week are written by students with the Halifax Community Learning Network (www.hcln.ca). HCLN is part of the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning and offers programs at the Captain William Spry, Halifax North, Keshen Goodman, and Spring Garden Road branches of the Halifax Public Libraries.
As a Crossing Guard my life isn't easy sometimes. I try to do my very best to keep the children and adults safe from harm. Most drivers don't like to slow down when I'm working. There are so many things that car drivers and bicycle riders do that makes my job difficult to cross children and adults over safely.
At the school area the driver must go at the speed limit. Bicycle Riders seem to pass me while crossing the children and adults over. I find that drivers play games like racing or tailgating or passing each other on the road.
Drivers like to make u-turns at an intersection even at the crossing area.
