School-run par­ents must use their legs

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion -

I dis­agree with D Boor­man’s com­ments [Gazette let­ters, Oct 19] that par­ents are forced to park il­le­gally.

No one is forced to. It is the in­con­sid­er­ate thought­less driv­ers who think their lives are more im­por­tant than yours or mine, and more so, than chil­dren’s lives.

Who shall we blame if a child was to be se­ri­ously hurt and no ac­tion is taken be­fore­hand?

It is not park­ing spa­ces that are needed, but par­ents to use their legs more, with our ever-in­creas­ing pol­lu­tion and the city’s con­ges­tion prob­lems.

What I would like to see is pub­lic space pro­tec­tion or­ders placed out­side our schools.
