It would be really helpful if parents who use this 'drop and go' would:
- ensure that children are ready to exit the car, with their bags, when you park
- avoid having to get out and open the boot or have lengthy conversations with children, and
- avoid making three-point turns in the road, as this causes hold ups and is dangerous.
Please note that parking at the bus stop is illegal, irritates other parents greatly, and is likely to lead to a parking ticket. Moped-borne traffic wardens are active in this area.
Finally, please please please would parents cross Long Lane at the crossing, rather than 'jaywalking' through the traffic. It is so important that young children learn by our good example.
