Dealing with School Crossing Patrols
When a school crossing patrol officer steps into the road you must Stop
(Rule 210 of the Highway Code)
If you do not Stop, the consequencies can include:
a fine of up to £1000
three penalty points
damage to vehicles/other property
There may be a flashing amber signal below the school warning sign to alert you that children may be crossing the road ahead. Drive slowly until you are clear of the area. Be cautious when passing a stationary bus showing a school bus sign.
Practice makes perfect, so get plenty of practice from a Approved Driving Instructor.
