Wellington North's Safer Neighbourhood team made a plea for people to consider their parking as pupils return to schools return following the summer break.
In a newsletter, they wrote: "Can we please remind parents they should not park on school safe areas, zig zag lines, pavements, keep clear markings and avoid blocking residential drive ways.
"Could we also ask that people consider any bus/walking schemes if your school has them. These are well managed and the children love them.
"If you have to drop children off due to to time issues, please abide by the restrictions in place. They are in place for the safety of your children."
