Abilene police are on the lookout for traffic violations in school zones with a little help from crossing guards.

They are working to keep children safe.

City of Abilene staff said there is a crossing guard at every school.

They are responsible for making sure several children cross the street safely.

Fox 15 is told safety is a two way street.

"Some of the common things I see while I'm out observing schools is drivers talking on their
cell phone. Several people 'well I've got to talk to my kid.' Have a plan beforehand," traffic engineer James Rogge said.

It is against Texas law to use cell phones while driving in school zones.
