Convenience At The Expense Of Safety

Parents dropping off children at local schools often park legally, but a few clearly have no consideration for other road users or the safety of others. These pictures, taken this morning show what happens outside most schools, most mornings.

Parents drop off their children and to save a few moments they park in places that are marked for no parking, or even stopping.

Why are these markings provided? It is to provide clear space, visibility and an element of safety for other road users.

If you are a parent who takes your child to school, please don’t stop on double yellow lines or zig-zags. They are there for a reason, please consider others.

Update 20/3/14, more cars illegally parked/stopped.
