Driv­ers need park­ing les­sons

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page - Louise Sta­ple­ton took these pic­tures of cars in Her­mitage Road

SUR­REY’S bad park­ing epi­demic has not im­proved since the new school year started on Septem­ber 5.

Res­i­dents of St John’s, Wok­ing have sent the Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser these pic­tures from Her­mitage Road, next to Win­ston Churchill School, dur­ing the school run.

Driv­ers have blocked both the pave­ment and the cy­cle lane, forc­ing pedes­tri­ans onto the road, and one res­i­dent said she was ver­bally abused when she asked one of the driv­ers to move.

Louise Sta­ple­ton said: “All I want to do is be able to walk to col­lect my daugh­ter from school with my one-year-old in the buggy safely, with­out con­fronta­tion or feel­ing in­tim­i­dated by oth­ers when I have to ask them to move their cars.”

An­other res­i­dent Christine Skeet said: “Par­ents are park­ing on the pave­ment and block­ing the road.

“We’re hav­ing to go in the mid­dle of a busy road. There will be an ac­ci­dent.

“What we would have liked is for the school to send a mes­sage to par­ents ask­ing them not to do this.”
