Usually I walk along Longsands Road and pass the Priory Junior School where I can always observe the "dodgers" as I wish to call them (at 6.30am there are always spaces available at the station car park) parking their vehicles along this road. They then scamper out of their vehicles and off to the station, with never a backward glance at the melee they leave behind for other drivers trying to make their way down the road a couple of hours later. Invariably, I can always see the same registration plates parked virtually in the same places each day.
I have no idea who Ms Piper took her advice from, but she was grossly misinformed. All I can reiterate to Ms Piper is to come and see for herself. Her comment regarding parents dropping off their children is absolute rubbish.
Perhaps only action will be taken to redress this ridiculous situation will be taken only after a tragedy has occurred - I sincerely hope not.
