One schools answer to the ice cream van.

My grand daughter goes to a good school but in the summer the ice cream man comes and parks van on the zigzag lines. Complaints including phographs of the van and its registration are passed to the police but no action is taken. Polite requests to move have failed. Icecream van sells them for £2.00 to £3.50. The school now sells the same just inside its gates fdr 50p or £1.00.

My grandson and I much prefer a McFlurry but I applaud the school for their action on this problem. Just hope that they aren't the same icecream vendors as we're around in the 60's and 70's. click here

.. back in the sixties it was ok to sell cigarettes to children as young as eight. now it's sugar that seems to be the problem. it's all relative. willyenogiveusabreakgonny.

It's not the police that will take action, it's the local authority. That happened where I used to live in east London, I was walking past one of the schools and all the parents cars were parking on the zig-zags, I happened to see a traffic warden and asked him if they should be doing that, he said no they shouldn't, he got straight on the radio and whole squad of traffic wardens appeared in a couple of minutes and ticketed the whole lot.

What makes me angry is if it is their little Jonny who gets run over because of illegally parked cards they are the first one's to complain.

* whole squad of traffic wardens appeared in a couple of minutes and ticketed the whole lot.*

So they should, this is a narrow lane with legally parked vehicles along one side leaving only one lane open past the school. With vehicles parked on the zigzags and others inconsiderably parked close to the exit means you have to pull out from the school with no vision of what may be coming just hoping it is not some idiot that thinks it's a race track.
