Question: How far should a child be expected to walk to get to their bus stop? Especially when there are no sidewalks for them to walk on? Answer: It depends on where you live. I would check with your school transportation office if you have specific questions about your child and how far they have to walk. Perhaps they can find you a closer stop.
Jenn, here's a question from a Facebook friend: "What time do Rosenwald Elementary school start in Belle Glade"
STATE CRITERIA FOR DETERMINING HAZARDOUS WALKING CONDITIONS.
(a) Walkways parallel to the road.--
1. It shall be considered a hazardous walking condition with respect to any road along which students must walk in order to walk to and from school if there is not an area at least 4 feet wide adjacent to the road, having a surface upon which students may walk without being required to walk on the road surface. In addition, whenever the road along which students must walk is uncurbed and has a posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour, the area as described above for students to walk upon shall be set off the road by no less than 3 feet from the edge of the road.
2. The provisions of subparagraph 1. do not apply when the road along which students must walk:
a. Is in a residential area which has little or no transient traffic;
b. Is a road on which the volume of traffic is less than 180 vehicles per hour, per direction, during the time students walk to and from school; or
c. Is located in a residential area and has a posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour or less.
(b) Walkways perpendicular to the road.--It shall be considered a hazardous walking condition with respect to any road across which students must walk in order to walk to and from school:
1. If the traffic volume on the road exceeds the rate of 360 vehicles per hour, per direction (including all lanes), during the time students walk to and from school and if the crossing site is uncontrolled. For purposes of this subsection, an "uncontrolled crossing site" is an intersection or other designated crossing site where no crossing guard, traffic enforcement officer, or stop sign or other traffic control signal is present during the times students walk to and from school.
2. If the total traffic volume on the road exceeds 4,000 vehicles per hour through an intersection or other crossing site controlled by a stop sign or other traffic control signal, unless crossing guards or other traffic enforcement officers are also present during the times students walk to and from school. Traffic volume shall be determined by the most current traffic engineering study conducted by a state or local governmental agency. History.--s. 297, ch. 2002-387.
In response to an earlier questions -- There are rules about what's hazardous if your child has to walk to school. See post below
Question about school start time in Belle Glade - You can call 993-8900. The school offices open at 7:30 and they should be able to give you the start time. Nothing on their website. Nobody answering right now. Also, Rosenwald Elementary is at a temporary location -- 39500 Pioneer Park Road.
Everything running on time in Palm Beach County ! #backtoschoolfl
Thanks, Jenn! Passed the Belle Glade info to our Facebook friend.
@jenn - also --a parent says there is a flaw in the website for Martin County School District bus times out of the Parkwood community in Stuart. It says "you do not ride" because it's apparently too close. But the buses do pick up in that neighborhood.
