Stop Drop & Go Zone

27/02/2018
 

Stop, Drop and Go Zone

 

 

·         Stop, drop and go zones are a safe place to be dropped off or picked up outside your school.
·         They operate like a fast moving taxi rank picking up students from the front of the zone.
·         There is a two minute limit for stopping in the zone.
·         Two minutes gives kids time to get in or out of the car without holding up the traffic too much.
·         Ensure children exit and enter the vehicle from the footpath side.
In the afternoons:
·         Delay your arrival until after release time. If you arrive early, do not park in the zone!
·         Display your surname clearly on the visor. Click here for template
·         Drive slowly to the head of the line.
·         Move forward as space becomes available.
·         Collect only at the head of the line.
·         Drivers are to stay in the car unless assisting with the loading of baggage and passengers.
·         Do not park for more than 2 minutes during signed hours of operation. If others abuse the zone, don’t follow their lead.
 Reporting parked vehicles:
 
If someone parks a vehicle illegally or dangerously they can be given a fine and their vehicle may be towed. You can help keep our children safe in the school zone by reporting illegally parked vehicles.
