School crossing patrols

Our patrols help safer crossing to and from school for children and adults.

By law they have the power to stop traffic to help anyone cross the road. Most of our patrols are on busy stretches of road where children cross to reach their school. They are manned every day during term time.

Even where a school crossing patrol is provided, parents remain responsible for ensuring their children's safety.

If you fail to stop then you will be reported to the police. Your possible penalties include a fine up to £1,000, three penalty points or disqualification.

Our school crossing patrol service is supported by the Admiral Group (opens new window)
