The yellow zig zag markings and 'school keep clear' writing (between Wychwood Primary School entrance and Milton Service Station) is very worn and not clearly visible, cars are now routinely parking on them at school drop off and pick up times despite school parents being repeatedly asked not to do this. Please re-paint ASAP to discourage parking here where children (often unaccompanied) cross road as this crossing is getting increasingly dangerous.

  • This issue is particularly dangerous in winter when leaves, low light and at times low, bright sunshine reduce visibility. In this photo there were 6 cars parked on zig zags including over the drop down curb. In order to cross, you need to step out beyond parked cars directly into the line of incoming traffic just to see if it is ok to cross. With extra cars parked on the zig zags any oncoming cars tend to speed up as there is only a single lane of traffic.
