Now I think these people do a very valuable job helping school children across the road and I have always had no time for the people who abuse them, won’t stop etc. However, yesterday I was travelling slowly towards the village zebra crossing. There were no cars coming the other way and no one behind me, ie, I was the only car approaching the crossing. I assumed the Lollipop lady would wait for me to go and the child would cross the crossing. WRONG!!! She walked straight in front of me, arms akimbo with lollipop held aloft. Luckily I was going quite slow but she still frightened the bejabers out of me. She escorted the child across the road and I drove on with still not a car in sight either way!
