There is a big parking issue highlighted to us by local schools, where parents of the students are causing dangerous traffic situations such as:
-parking on zigzag lines, causing the obstructions
-dropping of the kids while still participating in moving traffic!!!!
-parking on the pavement
Schools suffering from this problem are mainly: WESTFILEF ACADEMY, OAKLANDS PRIMARY SCHOOL and MILFORD JUNIOR.
Our PCSO’s have put safety of the kids as priority, trying to be present at schools when possible, sharing the safety awareness and consequences of dangerous driving first, however policing tools such a TOR’S- TRAFFIC OFFENCE REPORTs will be used accordingly in some cases.
See You outside of ours schools. Drive safe and mindful.

PCSO joint visits with Parking Wardens outside of our primary schools are rolling out. We are trying to book as many dates as possible for parking engagement, keeping all students and traffic users safe.
Since such a great parking response outside of Oakland’s Primary School, we are now focusing on Milford Primary School.
Dates for joint visit to be confirmed.
