Otterberg - Kaiserslautern district (ots) - The police kept an eye on the traffic situation at schools in Otterberg on Monday morning.
In the past, several residents reported to the police. The concerned residents announced that dangerous situations in road traffic kept coming up on the streets of the new development area in the area of the IGS and the Walldorf School. Pupils would have to switch to the street on their way to school because sidewalks and property entrances were blocked. The reason for this are parents who take their children to school by car.
A police patrol was therefore in the vicinity of the Otterberg schools from 07.30:08.30 a.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX a.m. The officials found several parking violations. They distributed information brochures to the parents and held informative counseling sessions. The police wanted to point out dangerous situations that can arise from the parents' taxis.
During the talks, the majority of the drivers addressed were incomprehensible and unapologetic.
Please remember: Parents can make their children's way to school even more dangerous!
The so-called parent taxis create a confusing traffic situation especially in front of the schools and thus increase the risk of accidents considerably! There is often a hectic and confusing hustle and bustle there before the start of lessons and after it has ended. Children have to squeeze through vehicles parked in the second or third row. Cars turning around also create a high risk potential.
Reconsider the need to drive or pick up your children from school. Should you decide in favor of the car: If necessary, use the existing pick-up and delivery zones. Follow the applicable traffic regulations and always let your child get on and off the sidewalk.
The police will be happy to answer your questions and provide information on the subject.
We want your child to always have an accident-free way to school - not only in Otterberg. | mhm
