Pupils' music video asks parents ‘Don't Park Here’
Hundreds of Cambridgeshire pupils are the stars of a film and song designed to encourage parents and carers not to park inappropriately outside schools.
Matt Staton, Cambridgeshire’s lead road safety officer, said: “Parking issues are probably the most common concern schools raised with us, particularly when it comes to encouraging walking and cycling.
“In terms of public health there are two areas of concern: firstly, the risk of harm from being involved in an accident, but also the knock-on effect on the children’s physical activity levels, potentially contributing to increased child obesity.
“The film by itself will not solve the parking problems that we have outside so many of our schools, but we hope this new and different approach will help to encourage those who do park irresponsibly to think again.”
