POLICE are asking parents to take on a New Year’s resolution to stop putting children’s lives at risk.
Sgt Stuart Hurst says parents are putting children in danger by parking inconsiderately on the zig zag lines outside schools.
He says help will be at hand for those feeling weak when it comes to keeping this resolution – with officers out in force from this week when the school term begins.
Particular problem areas include outside St John’s Primary School in Hawthorn Bank and Monkshouse Primary School, although the “resolution” applies to all schools.
Sgt Hurst said: “The zig zag lines are designed to keep school children safe. There’s nothing more dangerous than someone who is running late or cannot be bothered to park further away for their children to alight.”
