Marlow parents urged to leave their cars at home on school days
PARENTS have been asked to consider if they really need to drive to school by police chiefs, who say their decision could help save a life.
Officers said since the school term begun they have been receiving reports from residents about potentially dangerous parking obstructions in Crown Road, Herons Place and Kenton Close, Marlow.
While they have been dealing with this accordingly, police officials asked mums and dads to think over their journey to school.
In a statement e-mailed to residents, Thames Valley Police, said: "The children have been back to school a few weeks and all ready we have noticed on our regular school patrols we are experiencing parking issues at each of the schools.
"With this in mind it would be appreciated if parents considered the need to drive their children to school or if an alternative could be considered.
"Local residents have concerns regarding the parking of cars around or near school entrances; these vehicles sometimes block private drives or obstruct the view of oncoming traffic by parking near road junctions. Your consideration may help to save a life."
Meanwhile Marlow's policing team will be stepping up their patrols at the end of this month to deal with any problems resulting from Halloween and Bonfire Night.
