Police warn parents over inconsiderate school parking

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Police warn parents over inconsiderate school parking Police warn parents over inconsiderate school parking

Police have visited three inner city primary schools, handing out more than a dozen parking tickets, over concerns of parents’ anti-social parking.

Officers and council wardens visited All Saints Primary after residents got in touch complaining of parents’ unsafe parking outside the school.

Thirteen tickets were issued in total by council wardens over the day.

The move followed visits to Horton Grange Primary and Farnham Primary.

They targeted the time when the schools were finishing for the day and children were being collected.

“Verbal advice” was given to a number of drivers and officers dealt with an untaxed vehicle.

A police spokesman warned parents: “Further patrols will be conducted in the area over coming days and weeks, so make sure you think of child safety when driving and parking near primary schools.”

It seems to me they are targeting mainly asian schools. This is due to asians think they have the god given right to park and drive as they like. My Daughter goes to St Winefreds primary school in wibsey and an asian taxi driver was getting a ticket for parking in a bus stop. He was shouting and swearing at the officer in fromt of the young children.

If that doesn't have the desired effect (and it won't) the next step should be much more severe penalties.

This is also a problem at the new acadamy on Rhodesway cars stopping without warning to pick teenagers up in the middle of the road. The residents must be fed up of the cars churning up the grass verges etc. There will be an accident soon no doubt because the kids just walk or run out directly in front of moving vehicles as if they have rightof way.
The police should pay a visi very soon....

Putting large white painted rocks on the verges discourages mounting the kerbs to park on the grass, looks decorative too

Only a dozen tickets? They weren't really trying then, were they? I visit schools to talk on road safety and I see the problems only too clearly. Time to come down, and come down hard, on the offenders. No more "words of advice". Time for tough action!

I am Asian and whenever I take my children in the car I never ever park illegally ( I noted walking to school leads to more alertness for the children and better outcomes and so we always go by foot now and even return walking).

The council wardens completely get this wrong at St Matthews Shool in BD5 as they turn up and stand there before the parents arrive s)o the stupid and inconsiderate so called parents just drive off and park in the right place. So no one receives a fine. The next day with no warden the same behaviour continues.

I have written to the council to say please turn up at 9:03 and not 08:55 and they will catch them. Thisvadvice seems to fall on deaf ears.

Final point, if you are a parent who parks illegally then you are teaching your kids itbis ok to break the law. Dont be surprised if your kids grow to end up having a career in prison as YOU caused it.

Hoffster, are you part of the socialist worker party? Just because someone uses the word 'Asian' does not mean they are BNP/EDL or racist in any way, they are simply noting that he is seeing more Asians in his area breaking the law and receiving tickets. The simple fact you raise this point means you are part of this politically correct nonsense where no one is allowed ever to raise any point in fear of being labelled.

This is probably due to the fact that the complainant lives in an area which is full of people who dont give a hoot about child safety, parking, respect for others, clean streets, car insurance or paying taxes.

You do see parents abusing parking restrictions at lots of schools. Those in the report have had a lot of complaints, which is why the action took place. I doubt that you'd see many white parents at any of those schools. I also see mainly white people parking their cars outside school, but I don't live anywhere near any of the schools in the report.
