Protext our kids: Our campaign message is starting to bear fruit.

PARENTS are starting to take heed of our warning not to park illegally outside schools.

Motorists picking up pupils from Oakfield Primary in St Mellons in Cardiff avoided the zig-zag lines outside the school gates.

It may have been due to the presence of our photographer and it may have been for one day only but when the Echo's Protect Our Kids turned up parents and grandparents toed the line.

A clear space was left outside the gates of the school on Ferntree Drive ensuring children were able to cross the road without having their vision blocked by cars.

However, a local resident who did not want to be named said: 'It is not always this good and even if they do not avoid parking illegally many still manage to cause an obstruction by trying to get as close to the school gate as possible.

'The other side of the school on Willowbrook Drive is worse but with no zig-zag lines there is even less of a deterrent.'

The Echo is calling on all parents who park on double yellow or zig-zag lines to think again.
