PUPILS at a school persuaded motorists to ‘Park Away’ during a road safety campaign.
Children from Great Meols Primary School directed motorists along the route, and politely corrected drivers when they did not observe the ‘Park Away or One Way’ message.
The campaign was launched on Monday by Wirral Council’s School Travel Plan Team in partnership with the Great Meols Parking Awareness Campaign, and pupils, parents, ex-parents and staff at the school.
Cllr Lesley Rennie, Wirral’s cabinet member for streetscene and transport services, said: “The school is on a very short, narrow, residential road which, at peak times, becomes unsafe for children because of the volume of traffic and parked cars.
“This week, parents dropping their children at school have been asked to park away from the school, or observe a voluntary one way system, and it’s amazing how much safer that has made the road during the school run.”
