Ipswich: Parents at Pipers Vale Primary urged to keep their speed down near school

PARENTS at a town primary school have been warned to drive sensibility and park up carefully when dropping their children off nearby.

Th Ipswich South East Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) has urged parents at Pipers Vale Primary School in Raeburn Road to “mindful” of their speed.

The complaints and concerns raised by residents have meant the issue has become an SNT priority for the foreseeable future.

PSCO Jayne McCusker told parents that complaints had been made about parking and safety issues outside the school. The SNT is now joining forced with parking wardens from the borough council, who have been advised to issue tickets for yellow line parking – both single and double lines.

She said: “It is essential that the congestion outside schools be alleviated for the safety of your children and the public.

“The Police will issue tickets for obstruction of pavements, junctions, bus stops and zig zag lines, again with no exception.”

Spot speed checks are also set to be carried out to ensure motorists are not driving at high speeds around the school.
