  Is this the end of lollipop people?
Updated 26 January 2003, 13.21
Lollipop people have been around for 50 years
Lollipop men and women could be on their way out because of road rage.

Not many people want to do the job any more because they feel threatened by angry drivers.

There are fears that more and more schools will have to do without a lollipop warden in the future.

Drivers don't bother to stop

This could put children at risk as lollipop people help kids cross the road safely.

Drivers aren't stopping at crossings
Lollipop people have been around for 50 years.

One of the big problems is that loads of motorists don't even bother to stop or slow down when they see lollipop people, driving experts said.

This means wardens, and children, are in danger at school crossings.
