Yet again today am I faced with inconsiderate parents parking on the school box bay where I drop off my nursery special needs children, having to drive round the block 3 times still didnt give the driver time to go, then while dropping the kids off parked in the middle of the road the driver returns and because I had to park along side of the car, the driver was getting the hump and started to reverse back in dangering the teachers and kids, PRAT <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

While do drivers also park in the zig zag yellow lines outside schools, causing danger <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

Can we debate why and how we can stop this please

when the wardens did come down, the abuse was un real in front of the children, from a parent walking his children to the school

The other issue worth a mention is 14 to 16 year old six footers (male) being given a car lift to school from less than a mile from home

The problem is that most parents are worried for the safety of their children and so drive them to school, even if it's less than a mile away from home.

many parents where I am live by the school and drive, only a few hundred yards away, some parents are the types that fall out of bed at the last minute and then its a panic to get there on time

Sometimes the car users are parents of children living closest to the school.My daughter walks 1 1/2 miles to school with me but one of her friends is transported by car a distance of 200 metres.

Sad reflection on where our communities have arrived

In the 40s and 50s our parents did not have cars and we walked the 2 miles to and from school each day un-accompanied (from 11 years of age)
I do not remember a single incident of a child attacked in any way

You are so right Zody!

At our son's school you get these women who are at home all day because their hubbys have got some dodgy insider dealing job in the stock market that pay loads of dosh.

As a result these women have massive 4X4's which they can just about drive, park almost on the front door of their kids classroom and think they are it. Actually they are not all it because some have fat ars&s and spots.............. there are one or two horny ones though but my boy never seems to befriend their kids so I can go round their houses to pick him up.

When I was a kid I had a mile walk a did it four times a day whatever the weather....... can't remember the quality of the mums though?

The truth is if a major disaster happened at our School and the emergency services had to get through, they would have no chance as they would be completley blocked off by 4X4's and women with fat ars&s. The daft thing is some of the women that abuse the parking are on bloody school PTA committees etc and are suppossed to preach good practice.

OK RANT OVER........... no it isn't I have just remebered...................... For once in my life I have supported Blair on an issue an he gets beat........... I hope the politicians of all parties are proud of themselves for risking the security of the people to score political points.

I JUST HOPE YOU VOTED FOR IT MR ROSSINDELL. I would like to think you are above point scoring!

Yesterday outside my 2 little girls school some to55er in a BMW M3 convertable decides to park on the yellow zig-zags, gave the impression to all that he really didn't give a 5h1t what anybody thought of his actions and walked his young child into school having a right giggle about his actions.

Meanwhile 2 police cars come round the corner and on his return hit him with a parking fine along with 2 bald tyres......Hearing him appologise and grovel to said coppers in front of 30 or 40 parents and 5 year olds was amusing to say the least..whilst his licence and any remaining credibilty slowly slipped away.

Just sometimes the odds get even.

Similar problem near us.

One of our PCSO's went up to a guy who was parked dangerously on the corner of the road near the school blocking everybody's view and the conversation went:

"Excuse me sir, would you mind moving your vehicle - you are causing an obstruction and likely to cause an accident".

"What's up with you - I always park here - I don't see any problem".

"Well I do sir, please move your vehicle"

"I don't see why I should - it's not causing a problem"

"Well sir, I think it is, so let's see - I'll stick a ticket on your car and we'll pop along to court and see who wins......"

"OK - I suppose I'll move it...."

Nice to see that there is some justice in the world!
