VIDEO: Rainbow Crosswalk Aims To Slow Drivers Down

It's a first for Saint John...a rainbow crosswalk to remind motorists that students are walking to school.

It was painted today by the Forest Hills school Pay It Forward team on Westmorland Road.

Tim O'Reilly of Traffic Services at the City tells CHSJ News a traffic study found people are going to fast.

He says people were going well over the post speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour.

The paint and supplies for the project donated by Councillors Ray Strowbridge and David Merrithew.

The area is due for it's own signalized crosswalk in 2016.
