We have a duty to challenge inconsiderate and dangerous parking in Derby, especially around schools.
We are continually improving parking standards outside of schools to make sure that children are as safe as possible when travelling to and from school. We use high specification CCTV cameras mounted on the top of our cars to enforce regulations where vehicles are seen to be parking or dropping off in the 'keep clear' area outside of 22 schools in Derby.
We ensure that all schools in Derby are visited throughout the year.
Parking outside of schools
Parking on the ‘school keep clear’ markings outside schools in the mornings and afternoons is a significant safety issue and results in many complaints being received by both our Parking Services and Neighbourhood teams.
While we cannot control the majority of parking near schools, it is possible for us to manage the ‘keep clear’ areas where inconsiderate stopping or parking creates danger for pedestrians as well as causing congestion.
We have reviewed the ‘keep clear’ markings outside all the schools we patrol and introduced Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO). These orders seek to discourage drivers from stopping or parking in the ‘keep clear’ areas during certain times in the morning and afternoon. This enables us to enforce parking restrictions.
