THE EFFECTS OF MANDATORY SCHOOL-ENTRANCE MARKINGS

The results of the experiment carried out at a number of schools in the Greater London area, to assess the effects that mandatory school-entrance markings would have on parking and safety are reported. The experiments were conducted over three distinct phases at schools where the entrance markings were converted to mandatory and non-mandatory yellow zig-zag markings. Parking surveys were conducted at each site before and after implementation of the new markings, and the results are tabulated along with accident data near the sites. It is concluded that the introduction of the new markings has proved to be an effective means of reducing the number of stationary vehicles outside school entrances. /TRRL/
