Schools are a high risk area for injuries resulting from collisions. Parents and carers who pick up and drop off their children from Schools are reminded of the need to obey all of the Road Rules regarding speed, entering blocked intersections and parking.
Cars are not permitted to drive across or park on median strips and must not enter an intersection where traffic is banked up. Drivers should travel at a reduced speed and consider that children may unexpectedly run onto roads.
Mitchell Shire and Victoria Police will be increasing patrols around schools to enforce both the Road Rules and Parking restrictions.
