The 2010 Legislature passed Substitute Senate Bill 6363 giving school crossing guards
the authority to report to the local law enforcement agency when the operator of an
approaching vehicle commits an infraction by failing to stop for a pedestrian or bicyclist
within a crosswalk that is marked with school or playground speed zone signs. A
person who commits a speed infraction in a school or playground speed zone will
receive twice the scheduled penalty for the infraction, and the penalty cannot be waived,
reduced, or suspended.

Fifty percent of the money collected from the infraction is deposited into the School
Zone Safety Account and can only be used by the Washington Traffic Safety
Commission for projects to improve school zone safety, student transportation safety,
and student safety in bus loading and unloading areas.

If an adult crossing guard observes a pedestrian or bicycle-related violation, they can
prepare a written report using Form SPI 1663, School Crosswalk Violation, and submit it
to the local law enforcement agency that has official jurisdiction where the violation
occurred. The report must be delivered within 72 hours after the violation occurred.
Form SPI 1663 is attached and also available at
http://www.k12.wa.us/transportation/forms.aspx
