Parking around schools – Did you know?

It is an offence to park on a footpath, private property or a verge opposite the private property, unless the property owner has given permission.

Walk or ride to school if you can. Research has shown that exercise has many positive effects including improved health and wellbeing and better learning outcomes at school.  If it’s too far to travel on foot or bike, consider being dropped off at a safe place closer to school and walk the rest of the way.

Congestion around schools can be a major traffic hazard. Please obey all signage and road rules to provide a safer school environment and consider alternative travel such as walking, cycling or publictransport.

If you get to school by car, try arriving a bit earlier or later in the day to avoid peak drop-off and pick-up periods. Reducing the number of vehicles in the area at the same time will reduce the risk of accidents and crashes. Where it’s safe to do so, you could also drop off students a short distance from the school and walk the rest of the way.

Rangers at the City of Gosnells use the City’s Parking Local Law 2012 to ensure parking remains safe, lawful and allows traffic to flow. Don’t risk a fine for parking illegally around a school – many parking infringements are $100. If you can’t find anywhere around the school, consider parking further away and walk the rest of thedistance.
