Drivers warned not to ignore school crossings

Drivers in the north of the Island are being reminded it's an offence not to stop for lollipop men and women.

The Northern Neighbourhood Policing Team have issued to warning following an increase in the number of incidents being reported to the police by the school crossing patrol service.

Lollipop men and women use cameras in the UK to assist when motorists fail to stop, and officers believe such technology could be needed here in the future.

Drivers are urged to be alert when driving during school hours.
