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.”
