‘Some driv­ers don’t care about chil­dren ap­proach­ing schools.

They’re too in­ter­ested in get­ting a park­ing space as close to the gates as pos­si­ble. My chil­dren and I have nearly been hit by th­ese driv­ers. I think the roads sur­round­ing schools should be closed off for 20 min­utes be­fore and af­ter school to keep kids safer.’ Karen Robinson, Glas­gow

‘The num­ber of chil­dren be­ing driven to school has in­creased since par­ents were able to se­lect schools, rather than be­ing given the clos­est one. Many more cars are now out­side schools, in­creas­ing the dan­ger. Some par­ents seem to have lit­tle re­gard for the park­ing laws, which makes cross­ing roads ex­tremely dan­ger­ous. It’s so self­ish.’ Vivien Mclaren, Cheshire

‘Peo­ple park­ing on dou­ble yel­lows and right on street cor­ners is dan­ger­ous. Thank­fully, my daugh­ter’s school has a park­ing war­den now, which re­ally helps. Un­for­tu­nately, I have to pick up my daugh­ter in the car as she is hy­per mo­bile and in pain with her legs by the end of the day, but I get there early so I can park in an ap­pro­pri­ate place.’ Diana Stacey Hill, South­sea
