Parking at Schools

Dear E coppers

Alert message sent 21/09/2020 19:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

With the new school year beginning, we’re reminding parents to be mindful when dropping off or picking up their children and not to fall into the habit of parking illegally or in a thoughtless or dangerous manner. The area outside school entrances must be kept clear to allow an unrestricted view for approaching drivers and riders or children wanting to cross the road. Road markings are there for a reason and drivers must not wait, park, or stop to set down and pick up passengers on school entrance markings. Parents are also reminded not to park inconsiderately and in a way which will inconvenience residents, other road users or in a way that obstructs the road. Motorists are advised to NOT stop or park: • near a school entrance • anywhere you would prevent access for emergency services • at or near a bus or taxi rank • on the approach to a level crossing crossing • opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space • near the brow of a hill or hump bridge • opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked vehicle • where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users and powered mobility vehicles • in front of an entrance to a property • on a bend • where you would obstruct use of cycle facilities except when forced to do so by stationary traffic. #FenlandNPT #7142

Covid-19 – or Coronavirus

From Cambridgeshire County Council

I know that people are concerned about news reports on the spread of Covid-19 – or Coronavirus. This continues to be a fast moving issue, which is being carefully monitored by Public Health England (PHE) with the current impact and risk to the UK population considered moderate.

However, there are some really simple steps we can all take to get into good habits to protect ourselves and others to stop the spread of viruses and germs including Coronavirus.

These include:

  • Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds, and use soap and hot water.
  • Particularly remember to wash your hands after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas or travelling on public transport.
  • Promote the Catch it, Bin it, Kill it We can all reduce the spread of all germs when we cough or sneeze, by covering mouths and noses with a tissue, or a sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately in a closed bin
  • Keep up to date with information from trusted sources – like these:

We have also attached a link below with the new Public Health England campaign materials to share with your communities. We will keep you updated as this situation begins to develop.
