Parking warning from Cumbria Police Force

March 2, 2015

Dangerous parking outside Schools

Police and County Council Civilian Enforcement Officers will be working together to combat the illegal, inconsiderate and dangerous parking outside our local schools.

Complaints from members of the public and parents regarding such parking are constantly being received by both Police and the County Council

Children’s lives are being put at risk by a small minority of inconsiderate drivers who park on the footpaths and contravene the zig zag markings and yellow lines which are placed there to protect the children crossing the road to school.

Week commencing 23rd February the will see a Force wide education phase where by parents will receive letters via the  schools regarding the dangers they pose and the offences they may be committing. This will be supported by media coverage and advertising

Enforcement will commence on 2nd March. A number of schools in our area have been identified and illegal parking will be targeted and offenders will be prosecuted.
