A council could paint double yellow lines on 13 different roads around schools in the North-east to increase safety.
Aberdeenshire Council has launched a consultation on the plans, which would see the restrictions put in place around schools in Ellon, Pitmedden and Oldmeldrum.
The proposals would see double yellow lines painted in areas close to Ellon’s schools, including Meiklemill Primary.
Ellon routes affected could include Meadows Way, The Meadows, Provost Davidson Drive, Western Place, Western Avenue and Schoolhill.
The restrictions would also be put in place on Oldmeldrum’s A947 Urquhart Road, Commercial Road, Elmbank Gardens and Westbank Park.
Bronie Crescent and the B9000 Oldmeldrum road in Pitmedden have also been included in the plans.
A statement from Aberdeenshire Council said: “Concerns have been raised by residents about the high volumes of vehicles parking inconsiderately in the area, especially during school times. Parking on both sides of the roads and parking at junctions are obstructing both pedestrian movements and causing issues with vehicle movements.
“The situation has been investigated and in order to address the situation and aid safe movement of pedestrians and vehicles, the introduction of new ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions are proposed in Ellon, Oldmeldrum and Pitmedden.”
Ellon councillor Isobel Davidson said she was “absolutely supportive” of the move.
She added: “It needs to be enforced too.
“In Ellon, there is definitely a problem around schools.
“People don’t necessarily see themselves as parking when they are picking people up and they don’t see it as an infringement. I know the police are very keen to enforce this if it goes through.”
