Roads around schools at drop off and pick up times are often dominated by cars - badly parked and contributing to dangerous levels of congestion and pollution.
Naturally this can make the walk to school feel unsafe.
There are lots of ways that routes to school can be improved from introducing a 20mph speed limit, to setting up a Controlled Parking Zone or closing the road to motor traffic through a 'School Streets' scheme.
Here we have everything you need to make the roads outside your local school safer.
School street closure schemes - where cars are prevented from going up to the school gates at drop off and pick up times – have been successfully trialled in towns and cities in the UK.
Let's make streets outside schools less congested, less polluted and safer for children. You can write directly to your council to call for 20mph speed limit, a controlled parking zone or a school streets scheme
If there is a problem with pavement parking, pavement pot holes or pavement clutter on your route to school, we have lots of resources to help you take action.
