Ease Congestion at School Pickup

THE City of Gosnells said that when classes are out it wanted to stop people parking illegally around schools and to reduce congestion.

I find it a bit ignorant of parents who regard the safety of their children at school to be paramount but who create a dangerous situation outside of school when rushing to pick up their children.

I remember getting exercise by walking to and from school, which I enjoyed.

Now, many children today seem to miss out on walking.

Perhaps, to lower congestion, parents could find out a safe place to park a block from school and let their children walk to the car or the parent could park and walk to the school?

Then while chatting to the child, walk back to their car.

Less stress, less congestion for the school and for council to deal with.
