In the modern world of high speed everything and high pressure lives, it seems that even things that are supposed to lead to a safer road environment for our kids, can fall victim to Road Traffic Accident injuries.
Only today, I read a story about a Lollipop Man from Lincoln who suffered a double fracture to the hand whilst working on a crossing point located outside of the Monks Abbey Primary School, when a car collided with him after failing to stop when he had displayed his children crossing lollipop for the school kids to cross.
This case highlights just how negligent some people can be and how even when the injured party has taken every step possible (in this case luminous yellow clothing and a reflective sign) to avoid risk of injury, an injury can be caused. In this case, a motorist has ploughed in to someone who has displayed a lumious sign in the road to warn drivers to stop whilst children cross. To top it off, outside of a school as well!
