Incidents lead to SCP campaign
Hertfordshire County Council vehicles are carrying the message Stop! It's the law to remind motorists that refusing to stop for a school crossing patrol is an offence.
The county's road safety unit launched the campaign after a number of incidents including abusive language and motorists driving round SCPs. Campaign resources include coasters and car stickers.
"We were appalled to learn from a recent survey that many drivers are unaware that it is illegal to ignore school crossing patrol requests to stop," said Stuart Pile , executive member for transportation and environment.
"Most of them had no idea that flouting this law not only puts young lives at risk but could also hit them hard in the pocket and lead to them losing their driving licences. We want to make sure they get those messages, loud and clear."
