Operation Desert

You may have heard that Coleshill Safer Neighbourhood Team have been tolerant with parking around schools for a some time, this is because we believe in education before legislation. Unfortunately some drivers who park illegally just aren't getting the message.

So, in response to the continued dangerous parking and complaints from the public we have now launched an ongoing Operation called #Op Desert which focuses on those who park illegally around schools and... educational establishments around Coleshill, Water Orton & Kinsgbury.

So far (and we have only been going for 4 days) and we have issued 33 tickets. Its quite sad that so much time is being spent on parking enforcement around our schools but child safety is paramount and we will not stop until the situation dramatically improves.

Understandably some parents that have received tickets have then kicked off with our officers, which will lead to further issues for them - so there is a REALLY easy way to avoid getting a ticket and subsequent fines.

1) Don't park illegally around schools.

We have tried to be nice and just advise parents, but the illegal parking continues and we now have to take dramatic action.
