Help save our lollipop people
Hi, my name's Anna, and I'm Living Streets' Walking Campaigns Coordinator.
Across the country, road safety budgets are being cut - yet the latest available figures show that child pedestrian fatalities rose by 27% in 2011.
It's my job to lobby decision-makers to make sure road safety issues are a priority at a local and national level. And I need your help.
For generations lollipop men and women have seen children safely across the road, providing a trusted adult presence. Yet today's cuts could mean they are set to become a rare sight. Some local authorities are axing them completely.
That's why we are launching a new campaign to save our lollipop people, and remind local authorities that:
- a safe passage to school is a child’s right
- and it's their duty to provide it
