Campaign to stop bad parking

A CAMPAIGN has been launched to persuade drivers to stop parking on the zig zag markings outside Cambridgeshire’s schools.

The initiative is being launched at four schools across the county, including Elm Road School at Wisbech, in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council’s Safer Routes to School (SRTS) project.

Banners will encourage drivers to think about where and how they park around the school.

The banners will be attached to railings outside the school near the yellow zig-zag ‘keep clear’ markings on the road.

The banner campaign will be running until the end of term.

It starts with a green banner reminding drivers to keep the zig zags clear, and escalates via an amber and then red banner with a much stronger message on the red banner if the warnings are still being ignored.
