“Bit of a strange one that Nigel, not much going on today ?anyway, if the lollipop person is on duty it's only fair that adults use them, and it's probably safer for others if those adults aren't dashing across the roads in a haphazard fashion at school timesAs to whether adults are capable of safely crossing roads unaided, it all depends on the type of adult you're talking about, a few examples ...The young adult bouncing along with an iPod/iPhone/ plugged into both ears, completely oblivious to his/her surroundings, and with a tendency to step blindly into the road.The bike riding on the pavement adults (any age) who suddenly decide they want to be on the other pavement and head for it without a glance .... sometimes also seen with the ipod accessory too.Female adults, usually of the younger age, who do admittedly stand at the curb waiting for traffic to pass, but have the front half of the pram/pushchair well into the road. not a complete list of course, but I feel it's more than enough to kick start the topic ;)”

“Come on Nige, this was in the national news a decade ago. The service first began in the UK in 1937, since 2001 they have also been authorised to assist adults, too.”
