New school gate parking resource unveiled
Room 9 Media is set to release new campaign materials to warn parents about the perennial problem of school gate parking.
The campaign, ‘Cars and kids don’t mix’, gives parents a friendly but direct warning which is “designed to appeal to their sense of community spirit, and concern for their children’s safety”.
The message is delivered in a four page triangular leaflet and accompanying banner for display outside school. The graphics can be personalised for an individual school or council.
John Billington, founder of Room 9 Media, said: “We’ve looked at this problem and arrived at the conclusion that we need a new and innovative approach.
“We’re looking to appeal to drivers’ better nature – simply telling them off is of extremely limited value.
“As the style is also child friendly it is also ideal for classroom involvement.”
