POSITIONING OF THE TEAM

The captain and team member take up position on the side from which pedestrians wish to cross and the leader takes up position on the opposite side.

PROCEDURE

In some cases the leader will actually control the phases of the traffic light through the use of a key. In most cases the leader will activate a time-delay button on the pole.

  • The pedestrians are prevented from crossing by the team member on the one side of the street and the leader on the opposite side of the street.
  • Once the leader has ensured that the traffic situation is safe, the order for pedestrians to cross can be given.
  • The member opposite the leader lifts an arm to stop pedestrian flow. This is done in time with the changing of the pedestrian light. When crossing is clear, leader blocks crossing (now empty).
  • The team sees to it that the pedestrians only use the crossing when the traffic light is in their favour (no stop boards are used)
