Parents reminded to park responsibly outside schools
With children back to school for the new term, parents are being urged to put safety first by parking responsibly during drop-off and pick-up times.
The Staffordshire County Council campaign is calling on people to park considerately and reminding drivers that Civil Enforcement Officers will be visiting roads near schools right across the county. Any vehicle observed parked on yellow lines or in a restricted area could be issued with a penalty notice, if not observed picking up or dropping off a passenger.
The campaign is also reminding drivers to switch off their engines when parked up, which is good for the environment and people’s health, and helps reduce pollution.
It is hoped that the campaign will also urge parents to consider alternative modes of transport such as walking, cycling, scooting ‘park and stride’ or a walking bus. These all help to reduce congestion and pollution outside schools which is good for the environment, good for parents pockets, and helps keep people active.
