School Crossing Patrols

Staffordshire County Council and Stoke-on-Trent Council provides a School Crossing Patrol service to assist children on their daily journeys to and from school. Each school day, more than 350 Crossing Patrols are on duty across Staffordshire.

Are all drivers legally required to stop for School Crossing Patrols?

It is an offence under the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984, for a driver to fail to stop for a School Crossing Patrol wearing the official uniform and displaying the patrol stop sign. It is also an offence for a driver to move off whilst the Patrol is still on the road.

School Crossing Patrols have additional powers to stop traffic to help adults cross the road, as well as children going to and from school.
