Parents who park dangerously outside borough schools could be fined – and even taken to court - in a new initiative being launched by Dudley Council and West Midlands Police.
Operation Park Safe aims to make streets outside schools safer for children, staff and parents. The new initiative will see police asking parents, teachers and residents living near to schools to be their eyes and ears.
Anyone reporting an incident should complete the online form shown on this page. Police will be inviting people to send photos of dangerous parking directly to officers. Police will review the evidence before deciding whether to issue fixed penalty notices or take court action.
Examples of dangerous parking where action can be taken includes parking on pedestrian crossing or school zig zag lines, as well as near to school entrances in a manner which would prevent access for emergency services vehicles.
Blocking residents in by parking across driveways, and preventing access for pedestrians by parking across pavements can also be reported.
Your completed Park Safe reporting form can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
