Road Safety

I have had an increasing number of complaints about dangerous driving and parking outside the school at drop-off and pick-up times. There have been some near miss incidents where parents have used the car park entrance to turn just as children are walking across, where drivers have not stopped at the zebra crossing while people are still on it and where drivers have stopped in the middle of the road to let their children out.

I would like to remind you that it is illegal to park on white zig-zag lines either side of zebra crossings as it obstructs other drivers’ view of the crossing so endangering the lives of anyone using the crossing. YOUR children use the two zebra crossings outside our school but, at times, YOU are putting their lives at risk due to thoughtless parking.

I have contacted the Harrow Council to request increased visits from their mobile CCTV cameras and from Traffic Wardens and am hoping this might make you be more thoughtful.
