Safe parking around school

​As you are aware, child safety and illegal parking around school zones remains a concern for parents, children, local residents and schools alike, particularly during peak pick up and drop off times. Parking spaces during pick up and set down times are at a premium and subsequently, competition for these spaces can lead to poor driver behaviour and potentially dangerous parking practices.

Council is committed to providing education and awareness, as well as a presence at schools to conduct enforcement of parking laws, with a view to promoting safe parking and deterring dangerous parking practices.

They have asked that we encourage parents, guardians and visitors of the school to visit Council’s website at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/traffic-transport/parking-permits/parking-rules to learn more about parking legally in Brisbane.

While it is certainly not Council’s intention to make parking near schools an overly onerous task, regulating parking activities is necessary to promote safe driving practices during pick up and drop off times. Over the next school term, Council officers will be attending school zones to ensure safe parking practices. Parking fines may be issued in cases where illegal parking practices are observed.
