Lollipop Lady on Dowson Road

Officially known as school crossing patrollers, lollipop men and ladies as they are more popularly called, are a common sight in the UK.

Under UK law it is an offence for a motorist not to stop if signalled to do so by a patroller. In the past patrollers only had the authority to stop the traffic for children. However, the Transport Act 2000 changed the law so that a patroller had the authority to stop the traffic for any pedestrian.
