Cincinnati police warn drivers to slow down, watch for students crossing streets

For the first time in over a year, thousands of Cincinnati Public Schools students have started showing up to in-person learning five days per week, and police are cautioning drivers to slow down and pay attention.

"Put the cell phone down," said Bill Cole, a crossing guard of seven years. "That's probably the biggest thing that I see, are people that go by me all the time, every day, probably more than 50% of the drivers that I see have their phone stuck up in their face. They're not paying attention."

His wife Regina Cole has been working as a crossing guard for about 20 years. She said there have been numerous "close calls" when drivers go through red lights.
