Poor and inconsiderate parking close to schools can place children at significant risk.

Most accidents involving children outside schools occur when a child has their sight obscured by parked cars.

Parking restrictions and marked areas on the roads are there for a reason – to keep children safe.  The safest option when dropping off or picking your kids up is to park away from the school and take a short walk to the gates.

If you MUST park near to school and space is limited, please follow the rules:

  • DO NOT park on zig-zag lines or KEEP CLEAR markings
  • DO NOT park across dropped kerbs or drives
  • DO NOT park on footpaths
  • DO NOT stop to drop kids off in the centre of the road
  • ALWAYS abide by the restriction signs – parking only in permitted areas
  • DO park safely and be considerate of children and residents by not causing an obstruction
