Se llama lollipop man o lollipop lady a la persona encargada de parar el tráfico en las calles cercanas a los colegios en el Reino Unido, para que los niños las crucen sin peligro. Suelen ser personas ya jubiladas, que van vestidas con una gabardina fosforescente y que llevan una señal de stop en un poste portátil, lo que recuerda por su forma a una piruleta, y de ahí su nombre.
