As someone who has driven for almost 25 years, I wouldn't think of not stopping when you see the person, usually all in yellow with the tell tale sign stepping out to enable vulnerable people, mainly children to cross our roads.  The problem however probably arises when drivers don't see the person and are distracted from concentrating on the road.

I shouldn't be surprised really having acted for a local man who was knocked over by a young driver as he worked for Hampshire County Council in this role.  He suffered very serious injuries to his lower limbs that not only prevented him returning to work but also impacted on his retirement plans.

The report stated that two lollipop men outside a Lincoln school were going to start wearing body cameras to combat "lollipop rage".   They had both been injured this year by car drivers. In Warwickshire cameras are located in the lollipops and footage could be used to prosecute drivers.

This is a timely reminder during BRAKE's road safety awareness week that cyclists and drivers should be more considerate and that maybe leaving home 5 or 10 minutes early will make our journeys less stressful and safer for pedestrians.
