The South Marr and Garioch & North Marr Community
Safety Groups have provided funding to produce four banners to highlight parking
on yellow lines and zig zag markings outside schools in the Marr area. The banners were displayed at the
launch of the initiative at Banchory Primary School.
They will be used at schools throughout the Marr area where issues have been identified
during school drop-off and pick-up times.
Norma Makin, Secretary/Treasurer of the South Marr CSG, said:
"Along with the Garioch and North Marr Group we welcome the opportunity to
help improve safety at our schools.
"We live in a time when more and more pupils
are transported to school in the family car so safety is paramount."
Local Sergeant Gordon Forsyth added:
"Police are committed to keeping children safe and my concern is that pupils could
be hurt as a consequence of the minority of drivers who choose to park dangerously.
"I would remind those who do the school run not to obstruct driveways, and do
not park on yellow lines or zig zag lines next to schools."
