School Children Safe
Council will be launching a new road safety education campaign to
coincide with children returning to school at the end of this month.
The campaign focuses on parents using primary school drop off zones
road safety brochure will be distributed to all families at Bilgola
Plateau and Mona Vale primary schools which will offer advice on where
and how to park around their school. The brochure highlights parking
restrictions around the schools and offers tips on safe parking.
The campaign also includes signage near the drop off zones with
information on how to use the zones safely.
tips for parents include: not using bus zones and no stopping zones
while waiting for a parking space; staying near the vicinity of their
vehicle at all times; to keep moving if no parking space is free and to
park no longer than indicated by the signs.
Road safety banners
will also be attached to school fences displaying important road safety
messages, encouraging parents to slow down and not park illegally.
Council’s Road Safety Officer Michelle Carter said that the key message
for parents as the new school year starts was for them to ‘choose
safety over convenience’.
“Our goal with this campaign is to
work closely with the schools, the P& C associations and
ensure risk-taking while picking up or dropping off children from
school is reduced,” she said.
“We also remind motorists that RTA
school zones will be in force from Wednesday 27 January 2010 and that
they should drive no more than 40km during school zone times.”
“School zones are in force from 8am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4pm, Monday
to Friday,” Ms Carter added.

Check Online your Parking Fine
Council has introduced an innovative online system allowing members of
the public to check the veracity of parking fines.
which went live on the Council’s website this week, shows photographic
evidence of parking infringements which can be verified by entering the
fine number and the vehicle registration number.
system operates by downloading images from the computerised devices
carried by all Pittwater’s parking officers to issue parking fines. The
devices automatically take photos of offending vehicles with the time
and date of the infringement recorded on the image.
Manager Jeff Lofts said the system cost around $1300 to develop, but
the Council expected to recoup the costs of the system within weeks.
advantage of the system is that it will free up officers time which is
currently spent on phone calls discussing fines with members of the
public,” he said.
“From the public’s point of view, they can
go online and within a few moments get instant verification of whether
a fine has been correctly issued.”
He said infringement notices could still be challenged by writing to
the NSW Infringement Processing Bureau.
The new system also allows infringement notices to be paid online via
the Council website.
To access the system enter the infringement number and the vehicle’s
registration number at http://www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/council/media/news/2010/january_2010/check_online_for_your_parking_fine
and follow the prompts.
