Crosswalk safety issue on table as new school year just hours away

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 24, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- 320,000 students will be back in the classroom on Monday morning as the first school bell rings.

Local safety advocates want to remind parents about crosswalk safety.

One third of pedestrian crashes involve school children.

Nevada Highway Patrol is urging parents to remind their kids how to properly cross the street, and to hold hands when crossing with their children.

Troopers also want to remind drivers to yield when coming up to a crosswalk.

NHP says 28 pedestrians have already been killed on Clark County roads this year.
