    NEW warning signs are being posted outside schools across.

    PETTS WOOD School, Urging drivers to steer clear of zig-zag road markings.

    The yellow and black signs from Bromley Council will be attached to lamp posts, reminding motorists they face a £120 fine for parking on the painted parking restrictions.

    Executive councillor for the environment Councillor Colin Smith said: “Thoughtless and selfish drivers who choose to park on the zig-zags are being warned of the consequences of their actions.

    “These markings are in place to ensure that approaching drivers can see children entering and leaving the school and children can see passing vehicles.

    “Potentially fatal accidents can be avoided if motorists park their vehicles correctly near schools.”

    The first signs have been put outside the largest schools in the borough, Crofton Infant and Junior schools in Towncourt Lane, Petts Wood.

    Headteacher at the infant school John Brown said: “The school start and finish times are obviously very busy. This is the time of greatest danger for pupils, parents and road users.

    "Keeping children safe is of critical importance to us, so of course, we are supportive of this campaign."

    He added: "By parking a little further away from the school or walking, we can make a difference."
