School Parking Guide - Parking outside schools is an issue at most schools in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. To raise awareness of this issue, we have produced this guide to highlight exactly why it is a problem, along with what can be done to reduce the issue to a manageable level within your community. From government agencies to parents, residents to other road users, we all have a responsibility to keep our children safe. For this reason we would ask that you read this guide thoroughly and follow the advice included below
Listed below are just a few of the issues to be aware of when dropping off or picking up your child from school.
Problem:        Stopping/parking on yellow zig zag lines
Why:                Obstructs children’s view of the traffic and causes congestion.
Problem:        Parking within 10m of a road junction or on double yellow lines
Why:                Obstructs children’s view of the traffic and causes congestion as vehicles cannot negotiate junctions safely.
Problem:        Parking on the pavement
Why:                Pedestrians, wheelchair users and pushchairs cannot get by and are forced to use the road instead.  This is obviously dangerous and could result in an accident. 
Problem:        Parking over a dropped kerb
Why:                If you block a vehicle on a driveway then you are causing obstruction.  Your vehicle can be removed by police or you could be issues with a fine. 
Problem:        Double Parking
Why:                If you park so you block the road and a fire engine cannot get past then you are endangering people’s lives.  You could have your vehicle removed by police, be issued a fine or rammed out of the way by emergency vehicles in emergencies.
Under section 42 of the road traffic act the local Police Service have the power to issue a £30 fine to any vehicle that is causing an unnecessary obstruction.
