Park­ing MAD!

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

Head­teacher of the school, Richard Parkes, said: “De­spite re­peated at­tempts to re­mind par­ents of the im­por­tance of park­ing safely and ap­pro­pri­ately, there are still some par­ents that con­tinue to park in an un­safe way.

“Our school is on a cul-de-sac on a res­i­den­tial road, which means that the in­ap­pro­pri­ate park­ing also ef­fects our neigh­bours.”

A spokesman for Traf­ford Coun­cil said: “We ac­tively en­cour­ages al­ter­na­tives to driv­ing. The Road Safety Team works with all pri­mary schools in the bor­ough de­liv­er­ing a pro­gramme of road safety ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing and can help set up ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at re­duc­ing car use on the school run - such as a walk­ing bus.”
