A councillor has called for a local authority to consult with parent councils over poor driving practices outside Aberdeen schools.
Councillor Alex Nicoll, the SNP group’s education spokesman, was to lodge a motion at today’s meeting of the communities, housing and infrastructure committee.
His motion notes the concerns raised by parents and carers across the city regarding poor driving practices by a small number of drivers in the vicinity of schools, particularly at the start and finish of the school day.
The SNP councillor’s motion adds the council should instruct their traffic management team and city wardens to report on how effective their existing measures of road safety are together with the costs currently incurred.
The motion also asks the council’s traffic management team, city wardens and assets and finance team in education and children’s services to consult with individual parent councils and representative pupil bodies on measures that would help promote better driving practices.
