Councillors to decide the best ways to improve the safety around local schools

Bromsgrove Editorial 1st Nov, 2018 Updated: 1st Nov, 2018   0

COUNCILLORS are debating the best way to improve the safety in and around local schools.

Coun Chris Bloore (Lab, Sidemoore) suggested the council look at the possibilities of excluding cars from outside specific schools during peak times, increased enforcement action and improved parking arrangements.

“For example we could use red lines instead of double yellow lines on the roads outside,” said Coun Bloore.

Red lines on the road mean no car can stop there at all.




Whereas double-yellow lines mean the driver can park there as long as the engine is on and they’re in the car.

Coun Bloore added: “It’s all about protecting our children.”
