Parking and dropping children off outside school
The local police did a spot check on Southdale Road regarding parking infringements. As a result, 3 parking fines were issued. We have been asked by West Yorkshire Police to remind you of the following information, taken directly from the Highway Code:
• DO NOT park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of Southdale Road/Southdale Gardens junction, except in an authorised parking space
• DO NOT park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of Southdale Road/Belgrave Street junction, except in an authorised parking space
• You MUST NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement in London, and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it. Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs
• You MUST NOT wait or park, or stop to set down and pick up passengers, on school entrance markings
• It is safer for your passengers (especially children) to get out of the vehicle on the side next to the kerb
• DO NOT stop or park in front of an entrance to a property
West Yorkshire Police have advised us that they will be conducting regular spot checks and WILL enforce any illegal parking. Please can I ask for your co-operation in making sure that the children who attend our school are delivered and collected from Southdale as safely as possible.
With kind regards, Mrs Eccles
