Crossing Guard Under Fire For Waving
Motorist Says Waving Is Too Distracting

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- A school crossing guard is now smiling at drivers, but she is not waving after one man complained to her supervisor that it was too distracting.

Since August, Sharon White, 62, has been helping children cross Kensington Road on their way to Prairie Park Elementary School, KMBC-TV in Kansas City reported.

When she wasn't walking, she waved to drivers. But one man gave her greetings a chilly reception, claiming that her waving was distracting drivers, making it unsafe for the children. He went to police, asking her to stop.

"So now, I know try to acknowledge those who wave and try not to disturb those who don't," White said.

White smiled instead of waving at drivers Monday. She said that her supervisor with the police department told her it would be best if she stopped waving.

But Sgt. Dan Ward said that the department would never order an employee to not be friendly or wave to the public.

About 60 people, including students, staff and parents carried signs Friday at the intersection that said, "Save the wave."

The television station reported that the man who called police drove by the intersection Monday morning videotaping White.
