Lollipop Man Banned From Stepping Into The Road By 'elf And Safety (In Case He Can't Dodge The Traffic)


Recommended Posts


A lollipop man has been banned from stepping off the pavement to help children cross the road because of 'bonkers' health and safety rules.

Ron Warrick has been helping youngsters from St Mary's Primary School in Shenfield, Essex, across a busy road for the past 18 months.

But after the county council spent £30,000 on safety improvements at the busy junction, Mr Warrick was stripped of his lollipop because it is 'unsafe' for him to step into the road.


'If the council think it's too dangerous for Ron to cross the road then why on earth do they think it's safe enough for our children to go across there?'

Mr Warrick was called into action after the school asked Essex County Council for a lollipop man to help children get across a busy Tabor's Corner junction near the school in a bid to encourage more of them to walk to class.

The council recently spent £30,000 improving safety at the junction and installed traffic-detecting cameras which give youngsters an extra two seconds to cross the road.

Our councils are full of feckwits.

Comedy genius at it's best!
