Pupils at a Bridlington primary school have erected banners on their school sign and gates to try and deter parents from parking irresponsibly.
Bay Primary School has been encountering problems with vehicles parking on the nearby St George’s Croft and also on double yellow lines.
PCSO Jane Matsche was on hand to help pupils with the placement of the banners and also to chat to drivers who drop off their children in the area.
A spokesman for the ERYC Road Safety Team said: “ A large amount of cars can block the entrance to the school rendering it impossible for the emergency services to gain access and this also stops residents from getting their cars out. We have had the banners made to try and deter parents from parking irresponsibly in future.”
The school have arranged with the Bridlington Rugby club to use their car park in an attempt to get parents topartake in the Park and Stridescheme.
“The school is only five minutes walk, and this eases congestion around the school and gives parents time to walk and talk with their children instead of been distracted with driving and trying to find a parking space. When measured, it was two thousand steps, so this significantly counts towards the governments recommendations of ten thousand steps per day to keep fit and healthy. “ added the spokesman.
