Lollipop person

on Sat Dec 15, 2018 12:59 pm
At a VOSA test station yesterday , an MOT
inspector asked us if we knew the following
question

On a lollipop lady / mans lollipop it says
Stop children in between the two words
is a black rectangle . What is the black
rectangle for. Anyone ?

I must confess to not knowing but I'll hazard a guess that it has to do with those who are colour blind.

It's to do with the angle of the rectangle, when the sign is in the upright positionit means stop and stay stopped, at an angle it means stop

No neither, an clue :
The lollipop person was issued
with a stick of chalk with their lollipop

So it was (is?) for writing on for some reason, though I fail to see much point in that.

abuse the registration number was wrote in
the black rectangle and reported on return to
the depot
