Road safety officials have urged motorists to respect school crossing patrols.
It comes after a vehicle drove around a school crossing patrol assistant, who was just about to cross a group of schoolchildren over the road.
The incident happened at the Pakefield Primary School crossing on London Road, Pakefield on Wednesday, November 13.
Fortunately the pupils had not started to cross the road.
