Research shows that school zones can be highly dangerous

Researchers with Safe Kids Worldwide watched thousands of Middle and High school students crossing streets in school zones worldwide and the results can be deadly. 
 
The research found that about 80 percent of those watched were distracted by wearing headphones, or texting. The students walking are not the only concern. 
 
One third of those driving in school zones were blocking crosswalks, double parking, or even texting.
