Park safely - police urge parents
Exmouth police are working with Brixington Primary School in a bid to improve road safety. The police want to beat traffic congestion outside the school.
The safety of Brixington pupils has been highlighted by the police, thanks to a crackdown of irresponsible drivers.
Officers said the number of cars found parked outside Brixington Primary school at the start and end of the school day had prompted the police to appeal to parents to park with care.
Police community support officer Chris Ball said letters had been sent to all parents asking for more consideration when picking up youngsters.
PCSO Ball encouraged whistleblowers to report anyone seen to be causing a parking problem.

The officer said the police were keen to curb any accident hot-spots before a tragedy occurred.
PCSO Ball said: “This has been addressed recently with a letter given out by myself to all children, asking for parents to be more respectful with regard to parking and the use of the roads near to the school and surrounding area.

“Parents, so far, have been very helpful and positive in response, which is helping to ease a difficult situation for the road at key times.
“I hope people will keep me informed with any continuing issues and, between us, hopefully, the roads will be a safer place for everyone.”
