WHILE the council has decided to axe the school crossing patrols later this year, could they at least provide zebra crossings and relevant signage on busy roads.

This would be a one time cost and would be better than not having any form of traffic calming measure at all...after all pupils’ safety is more important than saving money.

I would also add that it may be time for parents/carers to think about how they park their vehicles when dropping their children off at school.
