Stop for the lollipop, signs say
New signs conveying the message ‘Stop for the Lollipop, it’s the law’ are being put up around Leicestershire.
Reports of drivers failing to stop were discussed at a school crossing patrols’ conference and the idea of using signs was developed as a result.
The temporary signs will be erected for a few weeks at sites where there have been reports of cars failing to stop when instructed to do.
James Gibson, senior RSO, said: “Thankfully, most drivers respect the authority of our SCPs. However a minority flout the law and fail to stop.
“The new signs are going up around schools where this has been a problem, and we hope they will get the message home.”
