Help unaccompanied children across roads where possible.
The school received the following letter from Inspector Steven Adams at Police Scotland's Community Policing Team.
Road Safety is a priority concern for Police Scotland, and particularly the safety of children on our roads. Without doubt, I am sure as parents you share our desire to reduce road deaths and casualties.
Recently, concerns have been raised regarding inappropriate driving and inconsiderate parking around the bus pick up/drop off areas for Ardgowan Primary School. The onset of winter results in dark mornings and evenings which reduce visibility for both drivers and pedestrians, and consequently increase the risks for both.
The surface streets around these areas are not suitable for volume traffic and roads engineering is not an option.
Please respect the direction given by the crossing patrols who are employed to ensure the safety and education of your children. I would furthermore request that you drive and park within the law. Please do not obstruct or obscure the road markings.
Officers have been instructed to enforce Road Traffic legislation in these areas and will be in attendance over the forthcoming months.

The Parent Council would remind parents of our article from June "Pick Up/Drop Off Points - Be Considerate" in which we gave advice on how to be considerate to other road users, pedestrians and our neighbours.Last Updated on Thursday, 30 January 2014 15:43
