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.
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.
Here we have everything you need to make the roads outside your local school safer.
