Safe parking at school pick-up

Canberra drivers are reminded to keep our kids safe by parking safely and legally around schools especially at school drop offs and pick-ups.

Parking across pedestrian crossings, corners, verges and double parking reduces pedestrian visibility, and blocks the ability for kids to see the road clearly.

You could also be fined for parking in no stopping zones, in a bus zone, in front of a driveway, or over a children’s crossing.

For drop offs in the morning, why not park a little further away from the school and walk with your kids the rest of the way. For pick-ups at the end of the school day, have a pre-determined meeting spot that’s nearby. This also helps if you’re running late, so your kids know where to wait and you don’t need to rush.

Access Canberra inspectors will be on patrol so let’s work together to keep our kids safe.
