Looking at this comment on the article - not much!


Disappointed parent of child at Woodfield
May 23, 2013 13:39

A load of nonsense!!! Caused all sorts of trouble with parents being forced to park on the other side of the school between the barracks and The Beacon. Surprised there wasn't an accident!


I suppose it might have shown the kids how easy and safe it is to walk on the roads if there are no cars. Mind you, there might have been some tears at home time when they realised that they actually depend on cars to get to and from school! At least they got a nice day for it....

The problem is, there are cars on all roads and more so than ever before ....the majority, as Mole points out, taking kids to and from school. surely it would be far better to accept this and work around it than try and ban cars from the road for an hour.

The people parking on the zigzags wouldn't happen to be parents would they?

A better protest would have been to refuse to be taken to school by car for a week.
