It shall further be unlawful for the operator of any vehicle to disregard any other reasonable directions of a properly identified member of a school safety patrol while he or she is on duty.
- For the purposes of this section, a school safety patrol consists of one (1) or more student body members appointed by an administrative officer of a school. A school safety patrol member shall wear a badge or other appropriate insignia marked “School Patrol” while in the performance of his or her duties, and may display “STOP” or other proper traffic directional signs at school crossings or other points where school children are crossing or about to cross a public street or highway.
