From the start of the new school year, the Rossendale Police Community Roadwatch team are going to continue operations outside several local schools where there have been problems over the last twelve months with motorists parking on the Zig Zag lines outside.
This action is causing a serious risk to children being dropped off and picked up by limiting visibility as they are crossing the road. Motorists have been warned in the past if they have been seen parking in the restricted area and the reasons for the Zig Zag lines have been explained.
The ultimate aim of the Roadwatch activity is to ensure the safety of the children, so full co-operation from parents is essential.
Please be considerate when dropping off and picking up outside schools and be aware of the position of your parked vehicle especially if it could cause visibility issues for other motorists.
From now on persistent offenders will be issued with Fixed Penalty Notices.
