A NEW road safety campaign launches today (Monday) reminding drivers to stop for school crossing patrols.

Hertfordshire County Council's week-long Stop Means Stop campaign is targeting motorists who abuse or fail to brake for lollipop ladies as they help children and parents cross the road to their school.

Motorists are legally bound to stop for school crossing patrols under the 1984 Road Traffic Act, and in the last two years, 25 drivers in Hertfordshire have been prosecuted for failing to stop for a patrol.

If you would like to support the Stop Means Stop campaign, call Barbara Crane at the Road Safety Unit on 01992 556814 for a car sticker or coaster.
