Neighbourhood police team to crack down on parking at Pippins School
Parents who put their own and other children at risk through dangerous parking at Pippins School are being warned to change their ways as part of a crackdown on inconsiderate parking by the neighbourhood police team.
Lazy parents who park dangerously outside Pippins School are being targeted by the neighbourhood police team.
Parents who park inconsiderately during the morning drop-off are have already been issued tickets but from the start of the new term in September police will be stepping up action. PCSO Terrie Parker-James has highlighted the issue in the August report from the neighbourhood team, out today. She says:
“The majority of parents park responsibly and legally however, there are still a few parents that are putting their children and others at risk.
“Please, can I ask that you do not park on the bends close to the junction of the school as this makes it difficult for vehicles leaving to see and manoeuvre around inconsiderately parked vehicles often causing them to go onto the wrong side of the road and beyond the white lines to exit the junction”.
She says that head teacher Tracey Ball is aware of the ongoing problems and police are currently in talks with Slough Borough Council with a view to finding a resolution.
… have a lovely summer and please keep safe when out and about near water, railways and roads and if you see me in the village please don’t hesitate to stop me and have a chat.
PCSO Parker-James, who is allocated to Pippins School, will be stationed at the school entrance in a marked police van at 3pm usually on the first Monday of every month during term time. She will be arranging a Bike Mark day with Mrs Ball once the new term begins, giving children and parents the opportunity to bring their bikes to be marked and recorded on a database. She has also issued some security and road safety advice for bicycle owners.
The next Beat Surgery at Pippins School will be held on Monday, 5th September 2016 at 3pm.
