Lexington Police are patrolling what they said are the ten most dangerous crosswalks in Lexington after a six-year-old boy was struck at the intersection of Redding and Lansdowne while walking to school last week.

Police said drivers should be cautious about their speed in school zones, but said it's also important to make sure all of the ice and snow has been removed off of your car.

"Clearing your windows completely is of the utmost importance. When you don't, you don't have a full range of visibility, and unfortunately with small children you might think you have a clear coast, you might think you are okay to go, but that snow or frost may be blocking your view of that small child that may be walking behind or in front of your vehicle," said Sherelle Roberts, the PIO for the Lexington Police Department.

Lexington police said they will be out at crosswalks before and after school for elementary students.
