happens often on my commute to work at a school crossing.
Lollipop man (or whatever PC term they are called now) presses button, crosses road with sign up and returns to my side of the road, but while the lights are still on red he gives me the nod, waves me through with his lollipop and says "on you go".
I always go, say cheers and get on with my day, but just wondering if I (or he) is breaking the law, cos I know you lot dont like red light jumpers and would have to report myself to the police if I thought I was breaking any laws
Does he have authority at a zebra crossing, in any legal way, or is it just a courtesy that we obey them??
