COUNCIL bosses are clamping down on parents who park illegally while dropping off their children on the school run.

From March a camera car will be operating in York to catch the offenders in a bid to improve road safety around schools.

And those who park in no-stopping areas will be issued with £70 fixed penalty notices, reduced to £35 if paid within three weeks.

According to the City of York Council many local head teachers have raised concerns over parking at their school entrances and in nearby streets.

The camera car is being launched in support of the Parents’ Parking Promise, an initiative asking them to sign a pledge stating they will not park on zig-zag or double yellow lines, not park on pavements, will park carefully and considerately and will consider walking or cycling instead of driving to school.
