If you see a school crossing patrol road sign, what should you do?

The school crossing patrol road sign is a warning, as are all red and triangular signs. You should use extra caution in this situation as there are undoubtedly children involved who could become distracted and cross the road. You might have noticed a flashing amber light in addition to the school crossing patrol road sign. When the crossing is in operation, these are manually turned on and off. It's crucial to be cautious at all times because this sign could either be placed on a zebra or light-controlled crossing or just on the road.

When you notice the school crossing patrol road sign, you should be aware that:

- The patrol officer will raise their stop sign (the lollipops) to stop the flow of traffic. This sign must be obeyed. There are children involved, so be sensible.

- The patrol will move into the middle of the road once both directions of traffic have stopped and help the children and adults cross.

- The patrol officer will go back to the kerb and let the traffic continue until the children are safely on the other side of the road.

- If this is on a dual carriageway, there may be two individuals on duty or they may help with one carriageway before moving on to the other.

Brilliant for the multiple choice bit of the theory. Never looked at the highway code, just went through all of the practice questions in this (free version) over a few hours and passed my test 48/50.
