A WARNING has been issued to inconsiderate parents who are parking their cars blocking school gates.

Police officers and PCSOs will be giving warnings advice outside primary schools across the borough as part of an initiative run by South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership.

Superintendent Eddie Murphy said: “Drivers should pay particular attention when driving outside schools and be alert for pedestrians crossing the road between parked cars,

"Let’s make sure that our children can get to school in safety. Remember that a vehicle can be a deadly weapon and the consequences of a traffic collision can be devastating for everyone involved.”

Police will be cracking down on those who park on the zig zag lines as well as asking people not to park on pavements.
