First published in News

GOVERNORS of a Bromley Cross school have urged pupils’ parents to think carefully before parking.

In a letter to parents, governors at Turton High School say residents of Birtenshaw Crescent and Montrose Drive “have been upset by vehicles parked in front of their houses, sometimes blocking their drives and sometimes preventing emergency service vehicles and refuse collections from getting down their street.”

The letter adds: “Your consideration here will be very much appreciated.

“Encourage your children to walk to school.

“Use the Chapeltown Road car park. Don’t use the Bromley Cross Road car park or park on double-yellow lines.”

The letter ends “We appreciate how congested the local roads are and everyone’s desire to keep children safe and we are sympathetic.

“However, we also represent the local community and would really appreciate your consideration for their needs to.”

These will be some of the same Parents who have graduated from parking illegally and inconsiderately at Eagley Infants. who never check that their children are strapped in safely and drive off with their mobile phone firmly grasped in their hand.
Unfortunately they are too brain dead to understand road markings or too ignorant to think that they may apply to them.
They are now stuck in their own selfish little ways, but god help you if you inconvenience them by blocking them in or dare give them a parking ticket which is less likely to happen then them parking properly seeing that the traffic wardens only appear in the area in school holidays. Perhaps the only solution is to make the areas around schools parking for residents only or allocate children to schools that are within walking distance or on a free bus route to school and ban ALL children from being taken to school in a car.
