Zig Zag Banner Highlights Road Safety

A banner warning about the dangers of parking on zig zag markings outside schools has been unveiled today at Greens Norton Primary School near Towcester.
The school took part in a photoshoot during Road Safety Week in November 2008 to create the banner campaign which will be displayed at schools throughout the county. Officers from Northamptonshire Police, County Council and Fire & Rescue Service joined forces as part of the Casualty Reduction Partnership to create the campaign. Using a hydraulic platform, Fire & Rescue officers took an aerial photo for the banner of students lying in the road on zig zag markings.
Jane Docking, Chair of Governors at Greens Norton Primary School, said: "Hopefully the campaign will heighten people’s awareness of the dangers of parking on zig zag markings, not only at our school but also at others throughout Northamptonshire."
The school’s Junior Road Safety Officers, Alanis Smith and Lulu Rock, who educate the rest of the school about road safety issues and organised the campaign, said: "It’s amazing to see our hard work in print on the banner and we hope it stops people parking on the zig zags outside our school. With the banners going up at other schools around the county it feels like we’re famous!"
