Sections 288  to 290: School crossing patrols and parking attendants

409.Outside the Metropolitan Police District (MPD), school crossing patrols are the statutory responsibility of local authorities.

410.Section 289 transfers from the Secretary of State to the GLA the power to prescribe what uniforms parking attendants will wear when exercising prescribed functions, and widens the definition of local authorities for this purpose to include the GLA.

411.Section 290 adds a new subsection to section 95 of the RTRA 1984 so as to enable a police authority and TfL to make arrangements for traffic wardens to act as parking attendants on GLA roads.
