What is a roadman?

According to Urban Dictonary, the term ‘roadman’ is often used to describe a teenage boy.

The website reads: “Roadman comes from the 21st century slang word, describing a boy (normally at a teenage age) as someone who thoroughly knows the ins and outs of his area, and the people in the area.

“He will also be involved in popular events such as trapping, driving and parties etc.”

Meanwhile, another definition states: “Roadmen are teenage boys from London who wear puffer jackets.”
