BBC Wales reports on a new drive in Cardiff to stop drivers ignoring school crossing patrols.
Cardiff council’s road safety team said there had been a number of incidents where drivers had been reluctant to stop for lollipop women and men.
They said the problem was particularly bad if they were helping adults cross the road.
Motorists are required by law to stop for adults and children at crossings.
In January 2001 school crossing patrols were given the power to help anyone of any age across the road and not just children.
Under the Traffic Regulation Act 1984, if a driver does not stop when signalled to by a school crossing patrol, they could have three penalty points added to their licence as well as the fine and the potential to be disqualified.
It isn’t just an issue in Cardiff. I was good pals with a lollipop man in Swansea, and every day he had a hair-raising story to tell.
