Enforcing zig-zag lines outside schools

We issue penalty charge notices to people who illegally stop on zig-zag lines outside schools.

To discourage drivers from stopping on the zig-zags, we use mobile CCTV vans to enforce the parking restrictions.

We use these to issue penalty charge notices of £110, reducing to £55 if paid within 21 days, to those who illegally stop on the zig-zags.

The zig-zags are there as a warning to motorists not to stop in this part of the road. This is because the cars block the children's view of oncoming traffic, making crossing the road unnecessarily hazardous.
