Are you doing the school run?

Alert message sent 06/10/2021 13:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Dear Citizen

Are you doing the school run? If so, please be aware of the below.

Police and Eastleigh Borough Council are patrolling schools and will deal with offences committed. However clearly neither of us can be everywhere at once. It is the responsibility of every parent/guardian, to do what they can to park safely, responsibly and legally, to respect the schools neighbouring residents and most importantly - to make the area as safe as possible for all children. Police have routinely photographed unsafe, irresponsible and illegal parking, in order to highlight the problem and ask for parents to change their behaviour. Photographs are used in social media and on Hampshire Alerts. Police also have body worn video, which can assist with prosecutions.

What Can You Do To Help?
•           Could you park safely, responsibly and legally a few minutes’ further away? Please don’t expect to park right next to the school, plan your morning/afternoon, to allow the extra time to walk – you can make a huge difference by parking a little further away.
•           Could you walk or cycle with your children? Even if you are only able to walk a few of the trips a week, this will have a huge impact on the parking congestion and number of hazards in the local roads. Plus – it’s cheaper, better for your car, healthier and you can teach your children about road safety along the way.

When You Park –
•           Please do not park, or stop on the zig zags outside the schools – This causes congestion and a bottle neck of traffic and affects everyone in the area. There is often a no stopping rule, clearly marked by signage.
•           Please do not park on or within 10 metres of a road junction, as per the Highway Code. This makes it difficult for other drivers to see around your vehicle and blocks the view of children trying to cross the junction.
•           Please do not park on road markings / restrictions, blocking dropped curbs, obstructing pavements, or anywhere where you may cause an obstruction or difficulties for residents.

A CHILD COULD BE HIT BY A CAR AND SERIOUSLY INJURED – PLEASE MAKE THE CHOICE, TO DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO MINIMISE THE RISKS.

Thanks, PCSO 12948 Mica Woodcock.
