Keeping Students Safe with Traffic and Safety Cones
Posted by Jeffrey Dornbos on 1st Dec 2015
Think about how easy it would be to live in a world where safety without the need for precaution was just a standard, granted in every school. Although that may be too ideal to fit reality, the good news is, students can still be safe thanks to traffic and safety cones.
The security of students must be taken into account both before and after they enter school doors. Weekday mornings are generally characterized by traffic and rushing, with parents in a hurry to drop off their children on time and others hurrying to make it to work on time, as well.
Traffic is generally inevitable. Using traffic and parking signs to regulate the direction of vehicles and pedestrians alike is not always enough to maintain safety. Sometimes, barriers are needed to ascertain that desperate drivers and running students don’t collide.
Enter traffic cones. A traffic cone is a bright orange emblem of caution. Cones come in different sizes and some feature reflective sheeting, so they can be spotted in all sorts of conditions. During darker hours of the day or in snowy/rainy weather conditions that may hamper drivers’ visibility, traffic cones can actually help with staying away from a danger zone.
Cones are strategically placed in areas that can create a passageway for vehicles, or they can similarly, block an entrance. The rubber black bases of traffic cones keep them stable to stand strong on certain surfaces without toppling over when hit with minor pressure.
Traffic cones may be used to direct traffic to prevent accidents from taking place around a school, but they’re also used inside schools to warn students nearing a wet floor after maintenance. They’re also used as safety dividers in physical education environments—particularly, in sports fields.
