Too close for comfort
Here comes the end of another week’s “fun” in the mornings. I guess that many people expected their children would go straight into school, as the parking wasn’t that busy.
We were a bit later than normal setting off, a short run caught us up, although I needed a breather straight afterwards! There’s nothing like being fit, is there? And before you ask, there are no photos of that.
Just the one car squeeze this morning.
I had a narrow escape from contact with this lorry – I felt the mirror brush past me as I was standing on the pavement. Big vehicles feel much more threatening that close to, they must feel massive to the children.
A couple of “interesting” parking choices today.
We now have a photo gallery, and a video gallery. Thanks to all the parents who are sending photos and videos to help highlight the issues we face each day. Your images are being added to my blog and the galleries. Keep them coming.
If you have photos or videos of your trip to school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be added to the growing body of evidence.
Today’s scores out of 10:
Traffic volume: 8
Stupid/careless parking: 5
No. of cars parking illegally:1 (set off as I was taking a photo)
