Oxfordshire launches 'Zig Zag' parking programme
Oxfordshire's road safety team, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, has put together a programme to help schools address the issue of Zig Zag parking.
One element of the programme encourages 'STARS' (School Travel and Road Safety) pupils to organise and be involved in a roadside event. This enables them to communicate to the local community how they feel about the issue.
The parking pack also contains additional ideas for supporting activities to prolong the effect of the roadside event including Oxfordshire's new ‘In the Zone’ approach and Parking Promise scheme.
For further information or a copy of the parking pack contact Mandy Rigault or Lisa Carroll on 01865 343167.
New website includes membersí portal and info on training courses etc
