LOLLIPOP wardens in the borough will now use sticks with inbuilt video cameras in a bid to stamp out unruly behaviour from drivers.
The new lollipop sticks being introduced by Hillingdon Council will have inbuilt video cameras to record incidents such as revving engines, driving across the school cross patrol when people are in the road, and swearing and other abusive behaviour.
Last year there were 1,400 incidents of abuse against lollipop wardens across the country and dozens of staff have needed hospital treatment after being hit by cars who failed to stop.
Councils who have trialled the new lollipops have reported a reduction in regular abuse and intimidation.
Hillingdon Council have bought three sticks which will be rotated round the borough.
Councillor Keith Burrow, cabinet member for planning and transportation, said: "Motorists need to be made aware that stop really means stop and they are committing a criminal offence if they don't. Those who don't stop are putting the lives of children, parents and our patrols in danger.
"We hope that the new technology will prove an effective deterrent to help stamp this out."
Drivers who fail to stop face a fine of £1,000, three penalty points on their license and even disqualification.
Councillor Mike Cox said: "There is a shortgage of lollipop people coming forward these days, Warrender school have been asking for one for a long time, and one of the key reasons is the attitude and behaviour of drivers.
"If this initiative helps to protect and reassure these important guardians of our school children it is to be welcomed."
