Mellow Yellow Monday: Lollipop Lady



Officially known as school crossing patrollers, lollipop men and ladies as they are more popularly called, are a common sight in the UK.

Under UK law it is an offence for a motorist not to stop if signalled to do so by a patroller. In the past patrollers only had the authority to stop the traffic for children. However, the Transport Act 2000 changed the law so that a patroller had the authority to stop the traffic for any pedestrian.

See her from across the road on Hyde DP Xtra.

For Mellow Yellow Monday.

  2. You have captured the very house I was born and bred in Gerald, I lived in the terrace house next door to the chipshop on Dowson Rd from 1965 - 1984. They used to have a crossing patrol then.

  3. A moving picture I must say. But our society runs more and more on non paid volunteers or am I wrong.
