Message from the Selby Neighbourhood Policing Team:

 

Dangerous parking is an increasing issue around schools, putting the safety of children and others at risk. Parking on zig-zag line or pedestrian crossings can cause visibility issues to drivers and people walking the pavements alike.

 

Drivers SHOULD NOT park near  school entrance. 

 

As well as anywhere that prevents access for emergency services, at or near a bus stop, opposite or within 10m of a junction, over a dropped kerb, and in front of an entrance to a property.

 

Yellow zig-zag lines indicate the length of the road where stopping or waiting is strictly prohibited.

 

Where there is an upright sign, there is a mandatory prohibition of stopping and/or waiting during times shown. Yellow zig zag lines without signs do not have a traffic regulation order and therefore, are not legally enforceable.

 

White zig zag lines indicate the length of the road where stopping or waiting is strictly prohibited.

 

Unlike yellow zig zag lines, white zig zag lines are enforced by local authorities and the police, and prohibit stopping or waiting even in the presence of a sign.

 

Stopping or waiting on a double yellow line is strictly prohibited

 

Double yellow lines prevent vehicles owners from parking or waiting in the area at any time.

 

Single yellow lines prohibit parking during specific times

 

A nearby sign will indicate the times in which vehicle owners are allowed to park on single yellow lines.

 

Can we remind ALL vehicle uses to maintain the speed limit and especially around school areas to be extra vigilant as children are present and may run out onto the road at any time. We all want to go home safely at the end of the day. 

 

Thank you Selby Neighbourhood Policing Team.
