  • I work to mitigate car use by parents/carers in the school run and recent years have seen a big move towards an attitude of entitlement becoming commonplace. A typical primary/early years school (one that has not undertaken huge work to tackle the issue) has big congestion problems during drop off and pick up times with many parents parking on zig-zags, obstructing access to residential driveways and much similar selfish behaviour.
    The prevailing attitude is that the right to drop off a child as close to the school as possible outweighs the risks to others. And it is getting worse.
    So the picture has moved into a sort of parking/manoeuvring insanity outside of many primary schools and has been getting steadily more chaotic as each year passes.
