Police clamp down on dangerous driving by school run parents
POLICE officers will be stationed outside Newquay schools at the start and end of the day as part of a clampdown on parents' "dangerous" parking habits.
They will issue warnings and then fines to anyone driving dangerously while dropping off or picking up a child.
Fixed penalty notices of £30 were handed out to several parents last week who were parked on zigzag lines on the approach to a pelican crossing and at a bus stop.
PCSO Phill Clatworthy said: "The aim is to ensure that children arrive safely at school as it has come to our attention that some parents visiting schools during this time are driving and parking in a manner that is likely to place others in danger.

"During the busy school times many parents drive onto the footpath sometimes at speed to drop off their children. Any driver found driving or parking on the footpath will receive a £30 fixed penalty ticket. Many warning have been given to parents relating to this problem however the problem still persists. This again will not be tolerated."
